Association des Femmes Handicapées de Madagascar (AFHAM)

Madagascar

Women living with disabilities in Madagascar experience “double discrimination,” facing patriarchy and ableism simultaneously. Tired of routine exclusion from school and work and being sidelined as ‘burdens’ on society, a network of women with disabilities formed AFHAM in 2011 to fight back in defence of their rights. Today, AFHAM is guided by its vision in which Malagasy women with disabilities are able to exercise control of their futures and flourish in an accessible and inclusive society. It has grown into a bold, national network of women living with disabilities who advocate for change at the local, regional, and national levels. With creative public awareness and organizing campaigns, AFHAM is centring the voices, rights, and leadership of women with disabilities who are claiming their power.
