At MADI, research and evidence on disability is needed for a range of reasons:
-to enable us advocate and plan for interventions for people with disabilities, to understand and meet their needs, inform policy and address the exclusion that they face in their communities so as to maximize their quality of life;
-to monitor and evaluate the interventions and programs that aim to improve the lives of people with disabilities;
We use both qualitative and quantitative research tools to collect information on the current situation of persons living with disabilities in low income communities and those trapped in emergency situations and affected by a crisis.
We use these research tools to get the exact number of persons with disabilities(women, children, girls, older adults etc) who need our services.
With the help of our volunteers, we collect and conduct statistics on the number of children with disabilities who are excluded from public schools; number of boys, girls, women, older adults with disabilities who are unemployed. This will enable us engage them in income generating activities, vocational training and employment in an inclusive manner.
Once we collect this information, we document and compile it into reports to be used for advocacy purposes and to design our programs and services for persons with disabilities.
Once this information has been collected, documented and is made available, MADI begins advocating for the human rights of persons with disabilities.
-we advocate for inclusive education for special needs students;
-we advocate for inclusive humanitarian response for persons with disabilities in emergency situations;
-we advocate for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in vocational training leading to proper employment.
Our Advocacy efforts are made to properly address the educational and employment rights of persons with disabilities in low income communities.
At MADI, we create awareness about Disability Inclusion in Education, Humanitarian Response and Vocational Training by organizing awareness raising campaigns.
Our volunteers engage in awareness raising campaigns to sensitize communities, decision makers and to mobilize Organizations of Persons with Disabilities(OPDs) and the general public at large on the existence of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Again, with the help of our volunteers, our awareness raising campaigns center on and lay emphasis on:
-the rights of children with disabilities to be enrolled in regular classrooms in their neighborhood public schools as per Section 24 of the UNCRPD; and the rights to education in emergency settings;
-the rights to proper nutrition, hygiene and sanitation during humanitarian emergencies;
-the rights to vocational training and decent employment in an inclusive setting;
