NEWS: First Malaysian Disability Lifestyles Magazine Launches
The first and only known national magazine for the disability-related community in Malaysia, Challenges, was launched earlier this month, the New Straits Times Online has reported. It is targeted at people with all disabilities.
An early sneak preview of the Challenge magazine was released in December 2007 and, as of this writing, can still be downloaded in PDF format (850 Kb) at:
The sample issue includes a story about a young, talented autistic Malaysian artist; a story about a workshop for disabled journalists; a story about a six-day trip in South Korea geared at raising awareness about accessibility issues; a story on which shopping malls are accessible to shoppers with various disabilities; an independent living seminar; and more.
It seems that Challenge magazine is currently still working on their web site–but when it’s ready, it should be available at http://www.CHALLENGESmag.com
Until then, readers can browse what seems to be a temporary blog site on the magazine at http://challengesmagazine.wordpress.com/.
Readers can also Fax the magazine at 603-78737030 or send an email to inquire about Challenges to CHALLENGESquery@gmail.com.
We Can Do first learned about the Challenge magazine when Ghulam Nabi Nazimani pointed readers to the New Straits Times Online story about it. I found further information, including the blog site and the upcoming web site, by searching online.
