Embracing Diversity: Toolkit for Creating Inclusive Learning-Friendly Environments

The Toolkit produced by UNESCO promotes and provides guidance on how to create an inclusive, learning-friendly environment (ILFE), which welcomes, nurtures, and educates all children regardless of their gender, physical, intellectual, social economic, emotional, linguistic, or other characteristics. They may be disabled and gifted children; street or working children; children of remote or nomadic peoples; children from linguistic, ethnic or cultural minorities; children affected by HIV/AIDS; or children from other disadvantaged or marginalized areas or groups.

The Toolkit was written especially for teachers working in a pre-primary, primary, or secondary level classroom. It is also very useful for school administrators and for teacher-training institutions.
