The Sustainable Development Goals urge us to Leave No One Behind. Both policymakers and programme implementers agree that inclusion of marginalised groups is key to achieving success. But the reality shows that inclusion does not happen automatically: You have to specifically plan for it.

In this practical and interactive 1 day training, as well as a group trainer, we will run 3 workshops to equip participants with relevant tools and resources. You will learn how to include a disability rights perspective in your work and make inclusion a reality; how to work with disabled people organisations (DPOs); there will be a specific focus on inclusive education for persons with disabilities as well as those with mental health challenges. The tools and methods that are used for inclusion of people with disabilities may also be helpful to include people who are marginalised and excluded on other grounds.

Content of the training programme

  • How to include persons with disabilities in educational settings
  • Use of mH Gap training manual in assessing mental health issues

  • Basic principles of inclusion: Attitude, Communication, Accessibility & Participation;
  • Identifying barriers that block equal participation of people with disabilities in development projects;
