    Disability & Strengthening Local Organizations

    Pin It

    Organizations of women with disabilities play a critical role in promoting the rights of women and girls affected by conflict or crisis, including those with disabilities. From the onset of an emergency through to recovery and development, the expertise of organizations of women with disabilities remains largely untapped. They face a vicious cycle of lack of funding and inadequate organizational capacity. Their exclusion from both the disability and the women’s rights movements further hinders their capacity development and leadership opportunities in the humanitarian sector.

    Toward this effort, WRC has provided ongoing mentoring and technical support to organizations of women with disabilities to play a greater role in humanitarian action at national and international levels.
