National Commission on Disability is hoping to bring an end to discrimination
The National Commission on Disability is hoping to bring an end to discrimination against differently able persons by introducing a sensitization programme.
Department heads of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport in collaboration with the commission held a workshop to educate heads on the Rights of People Living with Disabilities and how they can play their part in improving the way such individuals are treated.
The Commission’s Administrator Beverly Pile told Capitol News the time has come where persons are more accepting of individuals who are differently able. She said the workshop is one way that the much needed change can come about.
According to two participants they plan to use the information to empower other employees of the Ministry of culture youth and sport on how they too can play a part in bringing an end to the discrimination towards differently able persons.
The one day session touched on various rights of persons with disabilities access to Education, Health, Employment, Sport and Recreation among other areas.
