About The Atlas Alliance

The Atlas Alliance foundation is the disabled’s own umbrella organization working to promote the rights and improve living conditions of people with disabilities in poor countries.
Our goal is equal rights for all people and that all Norwegian development aid and humanitarian efforts are inclusive.

The Atlas Alliance foundation was established by the disabled's own organizations and was founded in 1981.
The organizations that created the foundation were the Norwegian Handicap Association (Handikapforbundet), the joint organization of the disabled (Funksjonshemmedes Fellesorganisasjon), the Norwegian Association of the Blind (Blindforbundet) and the Norwegian Association for the Disabled (Norsk Forbund for Utviklingshemmede).

The Atlas Alliance primarily contributes with support to the disabled's own organizations and their solidarity work with partner organizations in the south with funds from Norad and other sources, including from NRK's TV campaign. The Atlas Alliance can also support other organizations' inclusive aid work, such as "Together for Inclusion".
