Are you Ready, Willing & Able to give every child the right to an education?
There are around 50 million disabled children in Africa and the reality is that around 90% of these children are being denied this right – the right to an education
And the UN has committed to give every child a right to a primary education by 2015 and both David Cameron and Nick Clegg have given their support to this goal in principle
What isn’t clear, is what action the UK government is going to take to ensure that disabled children are included in this goal by the UN target date of 2015
We are calling on the new UK government to confirm its commitment to ensuring that every disabled child in the world can get a primary education by 2015
We are also calling on the government to publish a step-by-step guide to the actions it is committing to take to tackle this issue over the next five years
Our concern is that the world isn’t really Ready, Willing & Able to give every disabled child a right to an education by 2015?
We say the world isn’t yet READY to give every disabled child a right to an education, because we don’t even know how many disabled children there are in the world or the real percentage of those, not in school who are disabled
We say the world isn’t yet WILLING to give to give every disabled child a right to an education as there is a clear lack of both policy commitments and practice on the need to include disabled children in all education initiatives
We say the world isn’t yet ABLE to give to give every disabled child a right to an education because we don’t even know how much it will cost to overcome the barriers to accessibility that disabled children face – and there is a lack of international commitment to address the attitudinal and environmental barriers that prevent us from giving disabled child a right to an education
And if you are Ready, Willing & Able to take action today and give every disabled child a right to an education there are four things you can do today to help us help millions of disabled children in Africa:

The most important high-level meeting to combat poverty for 6 years takes place in a few days time (September 25) presided over by UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. It is tasked with nothing less than the delivery of the Millennium Development Goals themselves - providing clean water, sanitation, medical care and education to the world’s poorest people.
Please put your name to the letter below which we will be presenting to the Secretary General.

Match of the Day has had a goal of the month for ages; some of the goals are spectacular, and it is interesting to watch, but it's time to have a save of the month as well.
Strikers are not the only match winners, goalkeepers are often just as vital in winning the match, and with great goalkeepers like Petr Cech, Paul Robinson, and Shay Given in the premiership, making great saves, it is time they were recognised and rewarded too!

Thank you very much for visiting our petition.
We must make changes to No Child Left Behind in order to improve the education system for all students.
By signing our petition, you are helping to give a voice to those students who are being "left behind."
All are urged to sign this petition, even if you do not live in Windsor.
The portion of Pleasant Street in Windsor, CT that goes under the historic railroad bridge runs through wetlands, is located in the 100 year floodplain, and is habitat for endangered and threatened plant and animal species. The Town of Windsor's Plan of Conservation and Development identifies this area as a "significant conservation area" and an "open space priority area." We have been trying to convince Town leaders to convert that section of Pleasant Street to trail and greenway. But, they have been very resistant to the idea.
However, we have received support from the Windsor Conservation Commission and the Farmington River Watershed Association. If you agree that concrete and asphalt are not better than trees and clean water and that traffic/wallets should go by Windsor Center businesses, not houses, please sign our petition.
