20040203 Fact Sheet on Poverty and Disability


Fact Sheet on Poverty and Disability
Inclusion International


“If development is about bringing excluded people into society, then disabled people belong in
schools, in legislatures, at work, on buses, at the theatre and everywhere else that those who
are not disabled take for granted… Unless disabled people are brought into the development
mainstream, it will be impossible to cut poverty in half by 2015 or to give every girl and boy the
chance to achieve a primary education by the same date-goals agreed to by more than 180
world leaders at the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000.”
