Where does IFFFAP work?

IFFFAP is implementing long-term programs by focusing within the directions of FIVE YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN FOR International Foundation for Fight Against Poverty [IFFFAP] 2018 — 2023 , IFFFAP focuses in four (5) programs include Human Disability development & Disability Equalities, Health & Education Development, Women and Youth development, Disaster Relief & Humanitarian development and environmental sustainable development.

“The ultimate goal of IFFFAP social development is to improve and enhance the quality of life of all people especially people with Disabilities. It requires democratic institutions, respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms, increased and equal economic opportunities, the rule of law, promotion of respect for cultural diversity and rights of persons belonging to minorities and an active involvement of the civil society. Empowerment and participation are essential for democracy, harmony and social development. All members of society should have the opportunity and be able to exercise the right and responsibility to take an active part in the affairs of the community in which they live.

IFFFAP focus mainly on activities in key sectors of Human Disability development
More than one billion people in the world live with some form of disability, of whom nearly 200 million experience considerable difficulties in functioning. In the years ahead, disability will be an even greater concern because its prevalence is on the rise. This is due to ageing populations and the higher risk of disability in older people as well as the global increase in chronic health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and mental health disorders.

Across the world, people with disabilities have poorer health outcomes, lower education achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is partly because people with disabilities experience barriers in accessing services that many of us have long taken for granted, including health, education, employment, and transport as well as information. These difficulties are exacerbated in less advantaged communities.

To achieve the long-lasting, vastly better development prospects that lie at the heart of the Social Development Goals and beyond, we must empower people living with disabilities and remove the barriers which prevent them participating in their communities; getting a quality education, finding decent work, and having their voices heard.

This landmark international treaty reinforced our understanding of disability as a human rights and development priority. The World Report on Disability suggests steps for all stakeholders — including governments, civil society organizations and disabled people’s organizations — to create enabling environments, develop rehabilitation and support services, ensure adequate social protection, create inclusive policies and programmes, and enforce new and existing standards and legislation, to the benefit of people with disabilities and the wider community. People with disabilities should be central to these endeavors.

Our driving vision is of an inclusive world in which we are all able to live a life of health, comfort, and dignity. We invite you to use the evidence in this report to help this vision become a reality.
