Through our programmes we help disabled people to develop or strengthen their organisational capacities to advocate for their rights as equal citizens and so for access to services such as health, education, employment, but also self-determination and security.
With our independent voice, ADD International is active on a global level in influencing governments and institutions for greater inclusion of disability in development process.

AGTER aims at contributing to improve the governance of land, water and natural resources and at conceiving new ways of managing those resources, better adapted to face the challenges of the twenty-and-first century.
