The Disability-Inclusive Education in Africa Program Trust Fund (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Prioritizing Disabilities – Sharpening Focus on Inclusive Education Policy and Practice, at CIES 2018.

The Disability-Inclusive Education in Africa Program Trust Fund will benefit students with disabilities in Africa by financing activities that leverage USAID programs, Bank-financed projects, and analytical work. Specifically, the Trust Fund will promote more strategic use of resources for disability inclusion, and provide more flexible support for emerging needs and priorities in project preparation. This presentation will discuss ways the World Bank will use USAID's Guide for Strengthening Gender Equality and Inclusiveness in Teaching and Learning Materials to improve materials for learners with disabilities in the early grades and in conflict and crisis settings.
