The Problem

 

-650 million people in the world live with a disability

-The UN estimates the actual number to be 1 billion

-520 million, of those live in under-developed countries.

-90% will never go to school

-3% literacy rate in males with disabilities

-Only 1% for females with disabilities

-75% of girls with a disability in Africa will be raped, often due to a belief that it will cleanse a predator of AIDS.

 

The most disgusting statistic is that from the 2001 data summary to the 2011 data summary there is next to NO change in any of these statistics.

We are not okay with this. We hope you’re not either.
