The recently released "2020 UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report" (GEM) states that children and youth with disabilities are among the most marginalized and excluded people in the world. The same report says they are 2.5 times more likely never to attend school in their lifetime than other children. An estimated 650 million people are living with disabilities in the Asia-Pacific region alone -- this means millions of children are missing out.
