In China, Humanity & Inclusion continues to run programs under the operating name "Handicap International." 

Humanity & Inclusion in China

Our team has been working in China since 2000, promoting the inclusion of the most vulnerable populations in society. 

China is currently the world’s most populated country with a population of 1.3 billion people. There are more than 85 million people with disabilities, most of whom live in extremely precarious conditions.

China is also prone to major natural disasters, and its provinces are frequently affected by major earthquakes and widespread flooding. People with disabilities are highly vulnerable, with little to no assistance available to them.

Our Current Work

Humanity & Inclusion’s team of 14 in China works diligently to:

Improve Mental Health 

A comprehensive strategy on mental health has been adopted by local authorities to support the participation and social inclusion of people with disabilities. Humanity & Inclusion is partnering with civil society organizations so that policy is developed and implemented.

Economic and Social Inclusion

To improve the social situation of people with disabilities, Humanity & Inclusion facilitates inclusion projects in Sichuan, Guangxi, and Yunnan. These projects address inclusive community development, education, and economics. 

We also contributes to the development of more inclusive policies so that vulnerable people can play an active role in society

Inclusive Education

Humanity & Inclusion supports efforts to create a more inclusive education for children with disabilities by providing the necessary equipment and financial support to educational facilities. 

We also supports the establishment of a national level dialogue to mobilize education service providers and users to support the implementation of inclusive education policies. 

Support Organizations for People with Disabilities (OPDs or DOPs)

Humanity & Inclusion aims to reduce gender-based violence towards disabled women and girls, notably by working with women’s and disabled people’s organizations in China.


Our Past Work

Humanity & Inclusion has been in China since 2000, promoting a culture of of dignity, access, and inclusion for ALL people with disabilities and who are vulnerable. Over time our work has transformed to meet the dynamic needs of the communities we serve.
