Remember the invisible and excluded

27 Apr 2015
When walking the streets of Kathmandu, you will often see people sitting on the streets begging. Very often, these people are persons with disabilities. They are alone, and extremely poor. Now, when I look at photos and videos from Kathmandu, I wonder how these people are managing the situation.

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.
