There is very little qualitative and quantitative data on disability-related issues worldwide. ‘Voices of the Marginalised’ is a pioneering research study aimed at understanding the specific challenges faced by men and women with disabilities and older people, living in two different countries – Bangladesh and Tanzania. The stories collected in each report tell of the experiences of older people and persons with disabilities in one country, at one moment in time, providing valuable testimony of the considerable equality and poverty challenges they face – in particular in securing livelihoods; accessing public services; living free of discrimination, bullying, harassment and violence; and accessing justice. The methodology chosen was a community-based participatory approach.
