The UNPRPD project Promoting the Rights of Children with Disabilities was established in Togo in 2012 to build national capacity to meet CRPD obligations with a special focus on provisions related to children. A twofold strategy was adopted to achieve the project objective. The first component focused on the harmonization of domestic laws with the CRPD; the second aimed to expand educational opportunities for children with disabilities in the Kara and Savannes regions. Dedicated awareness-raising efforts were also built into this second component, in order to leverage the regional pilots’ results to trigger policy and institutional changes at national level.
