Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Disability-inclusive approach to bring families out of extreme poverty
In 2011, Humanity & Inclusion (HI), a leading global development NGO based in France, initiated a project in Bangladesh entitled ‘Taking Successful Innovation to Scale: Pathways for Disability – Inclusive Graduation out of Poverty’. The project supports families of persons with disabilities to transition out of poverty through a comprehensive model, including health care, training, and livelihood support. The project is in its third phase (2018 to 2022) and in 2020 is supporting 1,447 households.
“With HI’s support I am running a shop, my children go to school, and we can eat three times a day.”
