Among the different sectors of society, children and youth with disabilities sector is one of the least prioritized and neglected. NORFIL provides an avenue for their voice to be heard and their needs to be attended through the PFID program.

Support us as we walk towards the realization of the rights of children and youth with disabilities. One basic step you can start today is using inclusive language and avoiding discriminatory terms when addressing them.

A disability does not define one’s whole being.
