Under DPOD (Disabled people’s organizations of Denmark) and Danish Scout Aid financial fund, NUDOR is implementing a four year project (2016-2019) entitled Education for All. The project covers six schools located in different provinces of Rwanda. Its final long term impact is to see children with disability considered as the rights holders to education by the communities and schools.
EFA project activities are focusing on the following three outcomes:
- More accessible schools for children with disability,
- Community members who actively support the identification of out of school CWDs and provide them with local solutions,
- Children with disability are financially supported to access education,
- Enhanced NUDOR’s organizational capacity for the implementation of inclusive education.
In this month of May 2018, from 7th up to 11th, NUDOR conducted a joint field monitoring visit with Disabled People’s Organizations in Denmark (DPOD) and Danish Scouts and Guides AID representatives to different schools and communities in NGORORERO, RULINDO and NYARUGENGE districts, purposely to monitor the project implementation and collection of best practices and stories, while responding to different children’s educational needs.
It has been carried out through lessons observations, walk around the school, and interviews with children, teachers, parents and home visits were carried out.
It has generally been found out that much has been done: Children with disability have achieved to get integrated among other children without disability and they are performing at their own pace. It has also been found out that much needs to be done on training of teachers so that they can effectively respond to different educational learning needs and NUDOR’s intervention is planned to work it out accordingly.
The collected stories and best practices will serve as advocating materials in the future and will support for further mobilization of funds.
