Leonard Cheshire is developing inclusive education interventions to improve outcomes for children with disabilities in Kenya, Nepal, Tanzania and Bangladesh.

In Kenya, our Early Childhood Developmental Education (ECDE) projects in Homa Bay and Kakuma Refugee Camp are applying inclusive practices through specialist inclusive education training.

In Nepal, we are piloting an inclusive education model, promoting and improving access, enrolment and retention of children at schools in the Kalika Municipality of Chitwan District. We also provide data collection methodology, teacher training and auditing tools.

In Tanzania, we are developing a sustainable model of inclusive pre-primary / primary education.

In Bangladesh, we are designing an intervention to improve primary education systems for 5-16-year-old children with disabilities in Narshingdi and Sirajganj districts.

We're involved in the consortium because…
