In Nepal, roughly 11 percent of children have a disability, according to UNICEF estimates. Access to education for children with disabilities in the country often depends on their type of disability, rural or urban location, and language, and only a small percentage are estimated to have tailored learning support. 

LEARN – Leveraging Existing Accessibility Resources in Nepal will build an inclusive education environment for children with disabilities using a collaborative approach with Organizations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs), government and other stakeholders. It will develop and apply a flexible EdTech framework based on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and utilizing already existing accessibility resources, analyzing them and making sure they can used to optimum advantage to support ALL children to learn across diverse contexts in Nepal. It will build on past investments in promoting early grade reading and EdTech (ICT) resources.

The LEARN project is funded through the UnrestrICTed Challenge of All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development (ACR GCD). ACR GCD is a partnership between USAID, World Vision and the Australian Government.
