Foadac includes disabled kids

Children with Disabilities: the State of the World’s Children, 2013 

6/12/2013: This year, the United Nations Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF) annual publication “The State of the World’s Children” focuses on children with disabilities – the challenges they face, what governments, NGOs, and communities can do to provide for them, and the amazing things they can do when given the same opportunities as children without disabilities.
Traditionally, “The State of the World’s Children” begins with a statistic, fact, or finding meant to highlight a problem. This year, that is not the case. Instead, the report begins by making it clear that “the boys and girls to whom this issue is dedicated are not problems.” While children with disabilities do face greater challenges than other children, the point of the report is to highlight that when given the opportunity to flourish, children with disabilities can lead fulfilling lives and make rich contributions to their communities.
Disability Leads to Stigmatization
Unfortunately, disabled children are rarely given the same opportunities as others, especially in developing countries. According to UNICEF, they are at a greater risk for poverty, and are less like to attend schools or receive medical care than impoverished children without disabilities. These children are often hidden from view or relegated to second-rate institutional care. Additionally, children with disabilities are four times more likely to be neglected and physically abused than other children, and are over three times more likely to be emotionally abused, both by their peers and adults.
With 150 million disabled children worldwide, addressing their challenges is no easy task.  UNICEF, believes that disabled children have the same potential for success as all other children.

This reaches the core of what foadac is all about, not leaving out disabled kids , who even suffer more than regular kids in the same situation.
Many Thanks for your support always


  The use of physical punishment as a way of bringing up children is still widespread. A UNICEF study covering 29 countries found that an average of 86% of the children in those countries has experienced physical punishment in their parents’ home.

  Millions of children are refugees, asylum seekers, stateless and internally displaced by conflict, violations of their human rights, and natural disasters.

  Only 60% of children of secondary school age currently attend a secondary or higher school. The remaining 40% either attend a primary school or do not go to school at all
