Disability Action Network (DAN) is a local NGO based in Hargeisa, in Somaliland. The organization was created in November 2002 by disability resource persons and other members consisting of Persons With Disabilities (PWD).DAN envisions a Somaliland society in which all persons with disabilities realize their full potential, enjoy equal rights and opportunities.
DAN exists to empower persons with disabilities and their families/care-givers through disability mainstreaming, and improved and equitable access to quality rehabilitation services

DAN embraces the social model of disability in a human rights context; we look at society and the environment as the sources of the barriers against the inclusion and participation of persons with disabilities. We therefore aim to change society in which persons with disabilities live by removing or minimizing the attitudinal barriers, physical barriers, informational and communication barriers, and legilative, procedural and programmatic barriers.

We strongly beleive that the removal of societal and environmental barriers and accommodation of people with disabilities is the right way to ensure full inclusion and participation in society of persons with disabilities on an equal basis with others.

DAN’s core business involves an exclusive focus on services which address the needs of the most vulnerable of Persons with Disabilities. Its priority focus include serving War Victims with Disabilities, Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) with disabilities, Children with Disabilities and Child Protection issues.
