Project Aims

With a focus on disabled refugee students, and with particular concern for girls and women in this group, we aim to uncover the impact of previous and current crisis situations on educational access and learning success in three African contexts – South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe. As we understand the challenges and opportunities faced by disabled refugee students in these contexts, we aim to make recommendations to drive policy and practice to realise quality inclusive education in the settlement contexts. The project will provide policy and practical resources to all three countries that will enable them to progress their achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 4, and specifically Target 4.5 which states “By 2030, eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations”.
