Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to see people with disabilities participating in community development activities that they find meaningful in their own socio-cultural context
It's all part of making a better world.
To have a world with communities that are entirely inclusive of persons with disabilities where having a disability is not a disadvantage.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by persons with disabilities
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Accessible school, work, home and community environments
Available options for meaningful livelihoods among persons with disabilities
Participation of persons with disabilities in all spheres of life
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Success will be measured by:
Improvement of quality of life among persons with disabilities
Successful inclusion of persons with disabilities in community, education, employment and business
Socio-economic measures of contributions of persons with disabilities towards economic development
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
