Disability Is Not Inability

East African countries have ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, requiring all laws in member states to be amended and streamlined in accordance with its human rights–related provisions. The Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa and the Open Society Disability Rights Initiative support efforts by disability rights groups to access education. We partner with several organizations in the region that are working hard to make sure that these rights become realities for people on the ground.
