Invited to the launch of the National Disability Advocacy and Awareness Campaign.

The campaign is supported by two UNDP projects which are currently being implemented with the support of the Economic Planning Unit (EPU), the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development (MWFCD), and the State Economic Planning Units of Johor and Penang. The projects aim to reduce barriers that people with disabilities face in finding and retaining employment and accessing public transportation respectively, with the long-term objective of increasing their economic and social independence.

The campaign’s tagline, “Real Lives, Real Abilities” encapsulates the fundamental shift we are advocating in the understanding of disability from the prevailing charity perspective towards a rights-based perspective, wherein participation and inclusion of people with disabilities  in every aspect of life is important.
