Advocacy for Inclusion

Helping The Community

FONHARE saw however that disability itself was only a part of the problem, with attitudes towards disability dominated by ignorance and suspicion leading to persons with disabilities being seen as having little value. The disabled were seen as a burden, often left at home or abandoned, with no contact with the outside world. This drove the second element of FONHARE’s mission, that of inclusion: ensuring that persons with disabilities are full citizens, claiming the rights to which all are entitled. This has driven programs of increasing access, both physical and otherwise, to public and private institutions.
