We ALL have Human Rights!
…but, how do we promote the rights of those living with Disabilities? How do we ensure equality?
Recently I participated in the UNESCO and UWICDS's persons with disability training and I learnt so much about how to treat individuals with disabilities- respecting their needs while seeing them as people beyond their disability.
The training sessions really helped me to understand that persons with disabilities can have normal lives and should be integrated into society. It also helped me to recognize that it is our duty as a society to learn how to treat person's with disabilities with respect so we can end stigma and promote kindness.
It was a great experience and I hope that everyone can have opportunities like this to learn how to respect and integrate person's with disabilities as equal contributors to our society. Let's all play our parts in promoting the rights of persons with disabilities!
