Principles and practices for the inclusion of disabled people in access to safe sanitation: a case study from Ethiopia

Disabled people represent the largest socially excluded group and most live without access to basic sanitary services, which can exacerbate impairments and poverty. Nevertheless, they are often excluded from development intervention and research. In response, WaterAid in Ethiopia designed a pilot project in Butajira to meet the needs of disabled people within their service delivery work. Learning gained through the project informed WaterAid’s equity and inclusion approach.

He is married with two children and works hard to support his family, but Martial Ramartin has spent three decades fighting the stigma of his partial paralysis, left from a bout of measles when he was just four.

As a child, his parents treated him the same as his siblings, encouraging him to learn to walk again despite his paralysed left leg, and requiring him to help with the daily rhythm of life in rural Madagascar – lighting the morning fire, pounding rice to prepare it for meals, and fetching water from an open pond at the foot of the village.
