Reaching the unreached

Categories of unreached are geographically isolated people (‘white spots’), people excluded from services through gender-related and culturally embedded norms, including people with disabilities and exploited children. To make this policy theme practical, we will invest in a standard exclusion analysis to identify the unreached groups, context- and program-specific. This gives insight in targeted strategies to make these groups visible and enables to work on inclusion and monitor the success of such strategies. We aim to contribute substantially to the reduction of exclusion through an integrated focus on gender and disability in our work, a preference for new programming in white spots, a focus on exploited children (Education program) and collaboration with national and international expert organizations and local churches and community organizations to find entry to unreached communities and individuals.
