In Liberia, Humanity & Inclusion continues to run programs under the operating name "Handicap International."
Humanity & Inclusion in Liberia
Present in Liberia since 2000, our teams have been responding to issues resulting from the civil war in Liberia and the Ebola epidemic. Humanity & Inclusion works to improve the living conditions and the quality of life of vulnerable people.
According to the population census performed in Liberia in 2008, people with disabilities represent 14% of the country’s total population. They are often marginalized and discriminated against, making it hard to access the education system, the job market, and health services.
Our Current Work
In addition to addressing the issues that emerged from the civil war and the Ebola epidemic, Humanity & Inclusion employs six national staff members and one expatriate who work diligently to:
Ensure All Children Have Access to Education
Humanity & Inclusion works to promote the inclusion of children with disabilities within the existing education system in Liberia by training teachers in educational techniques adapted to the needs of children with disabilities.
