Rapid Assessment for International Development Organizations
Starting from "yes," getting to "how." Making inclusion of people with disabilities a reality in your organization’s work
People with disabilities comprise approximately 15 percent of the world population and their successful involvement in all aspects of international development is crucial. What if all CEOs and staff, at headquarters and in the field, embraced disability inclusion as a human rights issue, and began each discussion about people with disabilities with “yes, inclusion is a priority”? We would then be able to focus all of our energy, resources and training on the "how."
This simple rapid assessment will assist all international development organizations to move from “yes” to “how.” After you complete the assessment, we invite you to visit MIUSA’s website for a comprehensive list of resources, including MIUSA’s Building an Inclusive Development Community: A Manual on How to Include People with Disabilities in International Development Programs.
