Thank you for taking the time to read about the activities and achievements of the Disability Inclusion Lab in 2016.
The Lab was established by Light for the World as a space for NGOs, disabled people organisations, governments and businesses to come together to make disability inclusion work. Together, these stakeholders develop practical solutions to overcome the barriers that prevent people with disabilities from participating equally in development and in society.
The year 2016 was our first year in operation and we are delighted to share with you our positive results in this inaugural annual report. Over the last twelve months, we have helped 10 brilliant partner organisations to make their organisations more disability inclusive.
The conditions for success have never been better: the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities has been ratified by more than 170 countries and the Sustainable Development Goals, which promise to ‘leave no-one behind’, are firmly in place. The Lab is ready to support you to include people with disabilities in your development programmes and business initiatives. Together we can make disability inclusive development a reality!
