TEACHING GLOBAL GOAL 10: REDUCED INEQUALITIES
“I want to ensure that the recent historical mention of disabled people in the Sustainable Development Goals is upheld. I am committed to an inclusive world."
Born with cerebral palsy, Anthony Ford-Shubrook is determined to empower people with disabilities from all walks of life. After being denied access to college in London due to his wheelchair, he made legal history in the UK at the age of 17, successfully lobbying against the decision and paving the way for the Special Education Needs and Disability Act. Now 30, Anthony serves as the Youth Ambassador for AbleChildAfrica, a non-profit organization that has helped thousands of disabled children gain access to inclusive healthcare, education, and sports. Anthony has been selected as one of 17 UN Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals, where he’ll be raising awareness of the inequalities and discrimination faced by the disabled children AbleChildAfrica works with, whilst also playing a leading role in ensuring the Sustainable Development Goals remain inclusive of disability.
