Over 650 million people around the world live with disabilities which can exclude their participation in society. They often have little hope of going to school, getting a job, having their own home, creating a family and raising their children, enjoying a social life or voting. For the vast majority shops, public facilities and transport are not accessible.
Children with disabilities have to combat blatant educational exclusion. Of the 75 million children of primary school age who are out of school, one third are children with disabilities. Thus, children with disabilities make up the world’s largest and most disadvantaged minority. An estimated 20 per cent of the world’s poorest people are those with disabilities; over 90 per cent of children with disabilities in developing countries do not attend school; an estimated 30 per cent of the world’s street children live with disabilities: and the literacy rate for adults with disabilities is as low as three per cent – and, in some countries, as low as one per cent for women with disabilities.
