Disability-Inclusion at Chemonics International.

Fact Sheet | July 31, 2019

This primer is an overview for Chemonics’ commitment to ensuring persons with disability can participate in and benefit from development programs.

Chemonics’ systems and practices are designed intentionally to include diverse abilities, which also means representation in decision-making and resource allocation and designing programs so that persons with disabilities can fully participate. There are six principles Chemonics uses to promote inclusion in all their work, which range from partnering with Disabled People’s Organizations to targeted outreach to persons with disabilities in the hiring process and continued support of diverse abilities. Some projects that showcase include the Domincan Republic Criminal Justice System Strengthening Project (CJSSP), the Senegal Lecture Pour Tous (ACR), the Rwanda Soma Umenye, and the Jordan Cities Implementing Transparent Innovative, and Effective Solutions (CITIES).
