This chapter examines disability rights and special needs education as well as the importance of inclusive education in Ethiopia's Oromiya region in the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). One of the most important organisations in Oromiya is Christian Horizons-Ethiopia (CH-Ethiopia), an affiliate of Christian Horizons-Global (CH-Global). Since 2004, CH-Global has been working with the Ethiopian government on special needs education (SNE) projects. In 2010 the organisation proposed to build 50,000 primary school spaces for disabled children in Ethiopia. Embedded within the CH-Global proposal is a strong commitment to human rights. The chapter considers CH-Ethiopia's experience to date, set within the context of MDG 2 (which calls for the achievement of universal primary education by 2015), and its partnership with the Ethiopian government, along with the confluence of historical forces since the 1970s that have made that partnership possible.
