How we work

Handicap International works to meet the essential needs, improve the living conditions and promote respect for the fundamental rights and dignity of people with disabilities and vulnerable populations. HI is seeking to influence States, UN institutions, the EU and other multilateral organisations to bring about change by leveraging the obligations embedded in international treaties. HI is working towards policy changes in three specific areas: humanitarian action, development and disarmament.

Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, Handicap International aspires to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
