Plan International assigned the International Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation to conduct field studies into the rights of children with disabilities to education and protection in Guinea, Niger, Sierra Leone and Togo. The results are represented in this report. The research team finds that where disability awareness raising has taken place, the situation and acceptance of children with disabilities has improved. But overall there are relatively few examples of good practices in the region which address substantive issues of including children with disabilities in either education or protection work.
