This report evaluates the impact of a CRS project in Laos that achieved a 7% increase in enrollment rates for children with disabilities - to 66%, an above national average in 2015 - in the areas targeted. The project worked with different levels of government services to train principals, teachers and village authorities on how to implement the country's 2010 policy on inclusive education. It also provided individual assistance to children with disabilities and directly supported inclusive education in more than 50 primary schools. In 40 villages in the center of the country, the project provided medical services such as cataract surgery and assistive devices like wheelchairs. Funded by Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the project was carried out from 2013 to 2015.
