Policy, legislation and its implementation

World Vision will roll out its Diversity Policy which promotes disability inclusion and will review, revise and roll out other global policies and Guidelines on Disability Inclusion with regular updates on implementation. World Vision commits that all 16 approved core Project Models used for at least 80% of development programmes will be reviewed and refined to enhance the inclusion of children and adults with disabilities. 

Timeframe and/or implementation plan 
World Vision’s Diversity and Disability Inclusion Policies and Guidelines will be reviewed on an annual basis. World Vision’s Project Models will be reviewed and revised progressively for disability inclusion as each is re-appraised between now and September 2020. Work has already started on the Education and Livelihoods project models.

Representation and empowerment of persons with disabilities
World Vision has recently added Disability as one of five ‘dimensions of Vulnerability’ used in programme assessments, mapping and targeting to reach the most marginalised children and communities. People with disabilities will be represented in our programme design, monitoring and evaluation processes, including working with Disabled People’s Organizations to map their needs and engage them as partners. Disability inclusion will be monitored, tracked and reported on regularly to inform leadership decisions.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan
Disability is currently being mapped in 64 countries as part of mapping of ‘Most Vulnerable Children’ (MVC). Programmes will be adapted for inclusion of Children With Disabilities (CWD) with other MVC by the end of Sept 2019.
