Benetech is proud to be a part of Inclusive Futures, a disability-inclusive development initiative working to ensure all children and adults with a disability have the same likelihood as everyone else to access quality education, health and work opportunities.Spanning two programs in seven countries over six years, Inclusive Futures is unprecedented in its scope and scale. Funded by UK aid, it brings together 16 development organizations, the public and private sector, working with and for people with disabilities and the groups that represent them.
Benetech’s Data for Inclusion platform will be used to empower people with disabilities to share first-hand accounts about barriers to employment. The app will provide localized content that informs individuals about their rights and entitlements, and include tools for self-reporting, data management and analysis. The result is primary-source data to inform policy at the local, national, and global level.
