Including disability in your campaigns and awareness raising efforts will have wider effect on your target group. You can also specifically raise awareness around disability for example during the International day on Disability (December 3rd) or other international awareness days, such as International Women day (March 8th), World Autism Awareness Day (April 2nd).

  • Foster a respectful and positive attitude of the staff involved in humanitarian action.
  • Use gender, disability and culturally sensitive language and images.

For example, plan actions in partnership with Disabled People Organisations, in camps, settlements or the neighbourhood community such as mobilisations, training, press and media conferences.

Provide small scale action grants to DPOs or other local organisations to raise awareness and advocate for their rights.
