Open Society Foundations under the International Women’s Program and the Disability Rights Initiative has issued a call for proposals from eligible organizations aimed at addressing the situation of women and girls with disabilities in the following post-conflict countries: Nepal, Palestine, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Colombia. Only proposals from these countries will be considered for support.
Eighty percent of the estimated 600 million people living with disabilities reside in the developing world. The vast majority of these people is marginalized and is disproportionately poor. In many places, people with disabilities have virtually no access to services, and in some countries many spend their lives confined to institutions.
The Open Society Disability Rights Initiative seeks to address discrimination against people with disabilities and promote their inclusion in society by supporting a rights-based approach to disability.
