Improving access and equity for vulnerable people such as disabled children has been a strategic priority for CRS’ work in the education sector. To help children in Vietnam, CRS launched a pilot project in 1996, at a time when the most widely held view was that such a project might work in more developed countries, but not in Vietnam. After more than ten years of operation, including three grants from the United States Agency for International Development, a dramatic transformation has occurred. The “Inclusion of Vietnamese with Disabilities” project has improved understanding about disabilities on all levels: from individual families to policy makers at the national level. In the provinces where CRS has concentrated its work, at least 70% of children with disabilities are in school.
