DPOD (Disabled Peoples Organisations - Denmark) is a Danish umbrella organisation with 32 member organisations, representing 320.000 people in Denmark. The work for an inclusive world for persons with disabilities is an important task, and the Danish disability sector is a growing stakeholder.
In cooperation with the member organisations the DPOD Department for Development Cooperation seeks to advance the lives and human rights of persons with disabilities in the developing world. This is done in cooperation with DANIDA (the Danish Development Agency) who backs the activities through the Mini-programme administered by DPOD. The Danish member organisations can get support and funding from DPOD through the Mini-programme in order to carry out activities in developing countries. DPOD does not support or back individuals or organisations who do not have a connection to the Danish member organisations.
The overall goal of the DPOD Mini-programme is to improve the opportunities for persons with disabilities in the developing countries so that they can implement and achieve their rights as human beings. Thus the focus of the Mini-programme is both development and building of strong organisations of persons with disabilities in developing countries as well as lobbying and advocacing in relation to governments in developing countries in order to make them comply with the human rights for persons with disabilities.
