Partners

DDP project partners are committed and passionate organizations working with and for disabled people.

Each partner is unique in what they know and understand of disabled people and vulnerable groups, their needs and challenges. We support our partners by developing programmes together, finding the funding and by helping to put in place sound management, monitoring and financial systems, all of which strengthens the sense of ownership.

Partners are the lynchpin of DDP because without them we will not exist. We have worked with 22 partners, and our current partnerships are in Burundi, Ethiopia, India, Mozambique, Nepal and in the UK. Past partnerships have taken us to Angola, Bangladesh, and Cape Verde.

Partnership is a two-way and evolving process that brings with it mutual responsibilities and learning opportunities. Our partners share with us their particular circumstances and the problems they want to tackle, while we bring more than 20 years’ experience to supporting these aspirations.
