Improving Access to Protection, Education and Health Services for Children with Disabilities

The Save the Children International global strategy 2016-2018 places a strong focus on the children who have been left behind by recent social and economic gains. To reach these children, Save the Children has committed to consciously and deliberately put the most deprived and marginalized children first in our own work, and advocate for others to do the same. In line with this, disability is one of the three cross-cutting issues in the global strategy. As one of the 30 national members of Save the Children, Save the Children Norway (SCN) has highlighted the inclusion of marginalized children, including children with disabilities in its current strategy (2014- 2018).

The goal of this project is to improve the living standards of children and youth with disabilities living in North Gondar zone ensuring their access to basic services and opportunities to enable them to become active contributors and participants in their communities.

This brief provides an overview of Save the Children Norway’s project in Gondar, Ethiopia, focused on protecting the rights of children with disability. The project review has been commissioned by Save the Children Norway (SCN) to document the cross-thematic model (mainly child protection and education), document results and gather lessons learned.
