The Norwegian Association of Disabled (NAD) is an independent advocacy organization working for equal rights and full participation for disabled people. NAD works all over Norway to reach the goal of a society for all.
However, oppression and discrimination of disabled people does not only happen in Norway. Everywhere in the world living conditions among disabled people is systematically lower than among non-disabled people, and the situation is at its worst in poor countries. Therefore, for the last 30 years NAD has worked internationally fighting for equality for disabled people. Regardless of whether we work nationally or internationally, our starting point remains the same: NAD wants a society for all, where nobody are discriminated against on the basis of genetic inheritance, biological characteristics, faith or conviction.
Currently NAD is engaged in Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Lesotho, South Africa and Palestine, as well as refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. Read more about NAD and our international work here.
