The goal is to strengthen the human rights and fundamental freedoms of children with disabilities (CwD) in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, and build stronger and more equitable inclusive societies.
Today, more than 70 thousand children with disabilities live in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, who are particularly vulnerable to stigma and discrimination, and are often isolated from the rest of society. CwDs often face multiple violations of their rights.
In 2017, PF FSDS, together with local partners in the Republic of Tajikistan – the Association of Parents of Children with Disabilities (Dushanbe), PF Parents of Children with Developmental Problems (Khujand) and PF Ranginkamon, launched a program to create an inclusive society for children with disabilities. The program was implemented in two and a half years in Sughd region (Istaravshan city and Gafurov region), and Dushanbe city of the Republic of Tajikistan; and in all regions of Kyrgyzstan.
