Disability mainstreaming and developmental projects are aided by the principle of advocating the correct interventions. This mainstreaming, when approached practically and designed adequately, will make sure that the project is a success and delivers the desired outcome. The Accessibility, Communication, Attitudes and Participation (ACAP) framework was designed to promote mainstreaming disability as the key to sustainable, successful development by creating a inclusive society for all. This concept was well defined by DFID as an approach that leaves no one behind by ensuring opportunities for all. “A world where no-one is left behind, and where all women and men, girls and boys have equal opportunity to realize their rights, achieve their potential and live in dignity, free from extreme poverty, stigma, discrimination and violence”. This is to promote active inclusive economic, political an social institutions, tackling the structural barriers that keep some people from accessing opportunities and tracking progress across different population groups.
