Our mission is to support persons with disabilities in the developing world to advance legal frameworks to realize their rights.

We resource organizations led by persons with disabilities, primarily in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the Caribbean, that are leading efforts to secure rights for all.

Through grantmaking, advocacy, and technical assistance, the Disability Rights Fund and the Disability Rights Advocacy Fund support Disabled Persons Organizations (DPOs) to use global rights and development frameworks, such as the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – ensuring no one is left behind.

DRAF collaborates with its sister fund, the Disability Rights Fund (DRF), a grantmaking collaborative between donors and the global disability rights community that empowers persons with disabilities to advocate for equal rights and participation in society.
