Disability and COVID-19: Guidance note for projects
Girls' Education Challenge, UKaid
Inclusive Education - Disability
- COVID-19 raises the potential for an increase in stigma, discrimination and rights violations against girls with disabilities in the countries in which the GEC operates – remember that existing barriers will still be there
- Girls with disabilities face high safeguarding risks (e.g. gender-based violence (GBV), isolation, lack of information and exploitation)
- 'One size fits all’ approaches to learning in this emergency situation are unlikely to reach girls with disabilities – they will need more targeted assistance
- It is really important to maintain connections with families/households to make re-entry into education more likely.
