Girls and women

Girls and women with disabilities face multiple discrimination due to disability and sex. Abilis Foundation supports activities that promote opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to participate, to have their rights recognized and to improve their living conditions. Often their own organizations want to strengthen capacity, get organized, and support members. Income generation of women with disabilities is also a vital activity.

Basic education of girls with disabilities and literacy training of women with disabilities are important focus areas of Abilis funding.
