Making educational research count for children with disabilities in Malawi, Kenya and Uganda
The Reach Forward Project aims to address the exclusion of children with disabilities in Africa from quality education. It will do so by establishing a wide network of partners from a variety of sectors including UK and African universities, non-governmental organisations, educational managers and coordinators, practitioners and government staff in Kenya, Malawi and Uganda.
The project will draw on existing primary research to address a number of issues around the current educational support available for children with visual impairment and those with other disabilities, focusing on Malawi, Uganda and Kenya. The ultimate goal is to strengthen the capacity of partners in the South allowing them to set their own research agendas and inform the development of effective education systems.
