Providing guidelines for Inclusive Practice

Disabled International Foundation Sierra Leone (DIF-SIL) follows the Social Model of Disability, recognizing that people are disabled more by poor design, inaccessible services and other people’s attitudes than by their impairment. This guides our work in promoting and campaigning for Independent Living.

​We recognize the need for an inclusive approach which integrates disabled people fully into society, and the need to empower and involve disabled people in the formulation and implementation of social and economic development policies.
