The Engendering Disability-Inclusive Development Partnership
The Live Work Well Research Centre, along with many other people and organizations, are excited to announce our 7 year Engendering Disability-Inclusive Development (EDID) partnership. The project centres around the barriers that women and girls with disabilities face, who suggested by the United Nations are to be one of the most marginalized groups worldwide.
This partnership builds on established relationships with NGOs, policy makers and researchers across Canada, Haiti, South Africa and Vietnam to learn and gain detailed information about women and girls experiences through focus groups and interviews. EDID aims to increase the inclusion of diverse women and girls with disabilities by focusing attention, increasing knowledge and creating new opportunities for these individuals.
