Discrimination and lack of accessibility means that disability often leads to poverty, at the same time as poverty often leads to disability.

Crisis and conflict

All children have the right to an inclusive education of high quality. Despite this, 1 in 3 children living with a disability in the world do not go to primary school.

Organizational development

MyRight works to strengthen local organisations and drive development so that persons with disabilities have greater access to their rights.

Rights-based

A person who is affected by poverty is often also denied his human rights and has less opportunity to change his life.
