Let’s help children with disabilities make their start count!  

Children with disabilities in the Asia- Pacific region are among the most marginalised and excluded children in the world. They face barriers to accessing education, health care and often have a poor standard of living.  

Our Government recently reestablished its commitment to disability inclusion in the aid program. But that commitment must to go beyond words and turn in to action, to help ensure that children with disabilities in our region can make their start count.  

The May Federal Budget is an important opportunity for the government to turn words in to action for children and people with disabilities.  

Email your local representatives and ask them to be champions for children with disabilities in the lead up to the Federal Budget.  

Together, we can help children with disabilities make their start count.
