Since July 2015, UNICEF is official partners with the Zero Project!

This is a great opportunity to highlight together the achievements for inclusive education so far made, as well as to explore the gaps that remain across the world to advance children with disabilities’ education in mainstream schools.

As well, for the first time, UNICEF held recently, July 6 – 7- 2015, a global meeting “to raise awareness, inspire, and exchange knowledge on Assistive Technology (AT) products that can bridge equity gaps for children with disabilities”, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
