Become a friend of Atlas and support our work for disabled people in developing countries
The donor service Friend of Atlas helps us in providing a better future for disabled people in poor countries. At present we are particularly focusing on the access for disabled children to inclusive schools. School is the key to any progress, most of all this works for people with disabilities. 57 million children do not attend school. Nearly one out of two of these children have a disability. Without school they grow up to be a burden for the family or they are confined to begging in the streets. With an education life can be radically diferent: They can have a job and make a living. They may become the bread winner in the family and participate actively in their community and society.
