This Project supports “Inclusive education: WASH as a way to empower girls with disabilities’ to access education in Rwanda”, which aims to contribute to the government’s commitment to ‘leave no one behind’ through the advocacy for disability inclusive WASH policies and programmes for GwD in education. This multifaceted and youth-led project will identify out of school GwD and train female youth with disability (YwD) mentors to design and implement a twofold peer to peer mentoring programme using child-friendly resources that they develop. This programme will consist of individual mentoring at GwD homes and inclusive group mentoring sessions in schools, made up of both girls with and without disabilities, to promote inclusion and break down stigma. Teacher training, school modifications, the provision of hygiene kits, community awareness, a media campaign and parent group meetings will also be central to achieving project outcomes.
