Thirty-two million children with disabilities around the world do not have access to school. Inappropriate teaching methods, the absence of support systems, or a staircase that puts a physical obstacle between the child and the school are among the many causes of inaccessibility.
Humanity & Inclusion has been campaigning for all children, whatever their disability, to access education since 2004. By implementing innovative initiatives, such as mobile teachers and inclusive classes in mainstream schools, the NGO enables 150,000 children to be enrolled in school every year in countries like Togo, Burkina Faso, and Nepal.
However, the organization wants to go a step further. These children, because of the specific sensitivities they develop, and the work-around mechanisms they acquire, have so much to teach their peers. The NGO is now inviting every child with a disability to contribute to the Teacher Kids teaching community. Using short videos, everyone can pass on their knowledge, an idea, or an "extraordinary" tip to broadcast and share on the platform.
