Fewer than 3% of kids with disabilities can read. Josh Josa, inclusive education specialist at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and a finalist for a Service to America Medal, has helped improve access to education for millions of students with disabilities in nearly 50 countries.

  • Josa, a third-generation deaf person, said there are inequities in deaf education around the world, which is one reason he has spent his career helping kids with disabilities.
  • His work in Morocco led to the government there recognizing the importance of educating children with disabilities and setting up an office and policies for inclusive education.
  • Investing in education systems abroad supports the development of free, democratic societies, which benefits Americans, said Josa.
