Children with disabilities are amongst the most marginalized people in society – especially in low-income countries and in humanitarian settings. They are often excluded from basic rights such as access to education and social participation, not least because people do not see their abilities, and do not know how to include children with disabilities in mainstream activities.
Plan International Ireland, together with the UNESCO Chair in Inclusive Physical Education, Sport, Recreation and Fitness developed Plan2Inclusivize to address this issue.
Plan2Inclusivize is a training methodology that facilitates disability inclusion and improved education though inclusive sport and play. Inclusivize is a verb created by the UNESCO Chair to combine all actions required to actively promote inclusion.
In a 5-day workshop, participants develop a common understanding of disability; and they learn how to practically include children with disabilities in and through sport. The training has already successfully been implemented in Ethiopia, Guinea, Uganda, Togo, Jordan and Pakistan, with more countries to follow.
