The current situation shows a significant deficit in terms of inclusion and access to rights and fundamental freedoms of this category of minorities in Tunisia. Hence, the project aims to transform their reality by contributing to the sustainable improvement of their quality of life by adopting an innovative and holistic approach.

On a practical level, through an in-depth qualitative study accompanied by the collection of available quantitative data, the organization will document in a manner that specifies the current situation of these children and the obstacles to their access to two fundamental rights, namely health and education. Simultaneously, a team of legal experts will analyze the existing legal corpus to propose concrete and necessary modifications.

Awareness and training will also be essential pillars of the project, aiming to eliminate the stigma surrounding disability and promote social inclusion. A key component of the project is to provide practical support to children with disabilities and their families. This includes referral to legal, financial and psychological resources and facilitating their right to access information.

The project will rely on regular evaluations to measure its impact and adjust the interventions accordingly.
