In November 2017, the MIW team visited the practice led by UNABU in Rwanda. Their successful women with disabilties' peer-support and empowerment activities enabled them to become part of the MIW Good Practice Holders group!

 

Yetnebersh Nigussie, Senior Inclusion Advisor for Light for the World and personnally committed with the Technical Advisory Committee of the MIW Gender and Disability Project has been awarded the prestigious Right Livelihood Award 2017, widely referred to as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’, for her determination to ensure that people with disabilities are never left behind.  

The MIW Gender and Disability project is moving forward: Good Practice Holders from Latin America are working on their scaling strategies, and we have received 28 applications from Africa, which are being reviewed by the Technical Advisory Committee.

This video presents our workshop on scaling strategies, gathering Latin American Good Practice Holders, from the Making It Work "Gender and Disability" project.

On June 13th, we will take part in a side-event at the COSP. One member of our gender and Disability project will discuss access to sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and girls with disabilities.
