Join our Google Hangout on February 24 to discuss education for children with disabilities

Children with disabilities can face major obstacles in getting access to good education, particularly in developing countries.

The first ever World Report on Disability, a joint publication by the World Health Organization and the World Bank, has recommended actions for governments and their partners to tackle these issues.

You can learn more about how to create A World at School for children with disabilities on our Google Hangout – rescheduled from Thursday – on Monday, February 24 at 11am EST/4pm UK. 

The Hangout is called Reaching Education for All: How to achieve learning for the most vulnerable youth.

We’ll be joined by expert panellists from Leonard Cheshire Disability, the Youth Advocacy Group and Special Olympics to discuss how we can overcome the challenges facing children with disabilities face, both getting into school, and with finding the support they need once there.

You can submit your questions in advance via Google Hangout or by emailing [email protected].
