The House of Commons.

On Tuesday I visited Parliament with Results UK, the CEO of ADD International, and Matarr, a disability activist from the Gambia. We were there to lobby MP's on the vital issue of access to education for children with disabilities in developing countries, or, as the new terminology calls them, 'low income countries'. If children with disabilities in these countries can have access to education then poverty can be reduced, and we can ensure that talent is not lost and the human rights of individuals are protected. We spoke to 5 MP's, including the Minister for Disabled Persons, and urged them to attend 'An Equal Start for All:Disability and Education in Low Income Countries' to be held in Portcullis House on November 29th. Hopefully there will be a good turnout and we can really make a difference.
