As of July 31, 2021, Humanity & Inclusion has no active operations in Algeria.
Humanity & Inclusion in Algeria
In 1998, Humanity & Inclusion launched its first operations in Algeria working in aid of people living with disabilities and individuals facing extreme circumstances. The organization's operations in Algeria ended in July 2021.
Algeria has made major social advances, particularly in the field of social protection. However, people with disabilities are not included enough in society. Disability laws are relatively advanced but more effort is needed to fully implement them in the field.
Humanity & Inclusion worked to promote the social inclusion of the most vulnerable people and to improve their living conditions by advancing their rights and ensuring their needs are taken into account.
Our Past Work
Humanity & Inclusion had operations in Algeria from 1998 through 2021, fostering a culture of dignity, access, and inclusion for ALL people with disabilities. Over time, we have evolved our work to meet the dynamic needs of communities where we serve.
Read on to learn more about our past work in Algeria, and consider investing in our future.
