We have raised £ 9,120! Will you help us reach our target of £ 15,000 and support Inclusive Education in Zambia?

For 25 million children with disabilities around the world, education plays no part in their lives. Leonard Cheshire is changing this. More than 30,000 disabled children denied an education have now gone to school because of our projects.

But there are many other children and families who need support.

Sophie Morgan, TV presenter, has witnessed how prejudice and stigma can wreak havoc on the lives of disabled people worldwide.

Paralysed since the age of 18 after a car crash, the reporter and award-winning activist is backing our BBC R4 Appeal.

Donate today and help us enable more disabled children to go to school.

'I don't know what I would have become if I'd not been in school'

Helen faced the stigma of being disabled, and was left out of school and hidden away. Without an education, Helen’s life would have been one of isolation, fewer prospects and extreme poverty.

Our Inclusive Education team was able to assess Helen's needs to better understan what support she'd benefit from at school. We provided her with adjustable crutches, so she could wak, and physiotherapy to improve the strength in her legs.
