Pakistan Disabled People’s Organization

Subject: Forum of Women with Disabilities in Pakistan

Respected All,

Greetings from Pakistan Disabled Peoples’ Organization (PDPO/DPI – Pakistan),

The issue of disability is gaining more and more importance all over the world as well as in Pakistan due the disability movement for a “rights based society” initiated by organizations of PWDs themselves since almost two decades. World Bank, World Health Organization and other donor and development agencies have included this issue in their mandates. Governments have framed various policies for PWDs including reservation of jobs, concession facilities in travelling, special training institutions etc. The Government of Pakistan has made efforts to support the rights of Persons with Disabilities in the view of BMF and National Policy on disability and now Alhamdurillah Pakistan has signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

However, despite these efforts, the sad fact is that most people with disabilities especially women with disabilities and their families remain completely un-served by government, NGOs and even DPOs.

Women with disabilities are disadvantaged in several key areas when compared with other women, men with disabilities, and the society as a whole. These women face a triple handicap and discrimination due to their disability, gender and developing world status. At the same time, Stigma remains in society at large, within communities, and even, in many cases of uneducated segments of society, within families who see disabled women as a loss of productive potential and a drain on family resources. So, while on the one hand, the strong cultural family network ensures their financial security, on the other, the stigma often results in their remaining invisible members of society.

The major barrier to employment and other socio-economic benefits for Women with Disabilities in our society continues to be attitudinal barriers; stereotypical thinking and assumption about what women with disabilities can and can’t do.

The truth is that, the range of abilities of persons within any disabilities group is enormous, we have a large number of women with disabilities in Pakistan who are taking part in the activities of daily life with courage, there is dire need to involve that women as a role model or highlight their efforts to understand the social and economic realities and possibilities with regards to disability.

We need to get rid of our stereotypical images and view each “individual” as just that “an individual”. Access to and sharing of information resources can build the capacity of local and national disability organizations, promote advocacy by and for people with disability and improve the quality of life experienced by women with disabilities.

The fist humble step of this forum is to bridge the information and communication gap between all the leading women with disabilities in Pakistan.

On behalf of PDPO/DPI – Pakistan, I would like to request you all to share your short profile with us by the end of this week, after the completion of selection process of forum members, we will decide the date for Coordination Meeting.

Your feedback and coordination will assist us to make it successful

Looking forward to hear from you,

Regards,

Abia Akram,
Women Coordinator – PDPO/DPI, Pakistan

NEWS: Disability Advocate Venus Ilagan Appointed as New RI Secretary General

Posted on 16 July 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Human Rights, News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Distinguished Disability Advocate Venus Ilagan Appointed as New RI Secretary General

(New York, New York, US, July 14, 2008)

Rehabilitation International
(RI) is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Secretary General, Venus Ilagan of the Philippines. As a woman with a disability from the South, Venus has worked tirelessly to advance the rights of persons with disabilities, particularly during the negotiations for the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Venus is expected to commence this important new role in September 2008, subject to resolution of visa and contractual arrangements, and Venus will be based at the RI headquarters in New York City, New York.

Venus is a well-known advocate for the rights of persons with disabilities for years. As a leader in the National Organization of Disabled Peoples’ of the Philippines (KAMPI) and the Differently-Abled Women’s Network (DAWN) of the Philippines, as well as holding various positions, including Chairperson, of Disabled Peoples’ International (DPI), Venus has promoted disability rights at the national, regional and international levels. Her vast experience with UN agencies and other international organizations includes her consultancy work with the Asian Development Bank and the World Health Organization.

As a representative of DPI, Venus has strong links within the International Disability Alliance (IDA), a coalition of 10 international and regional organizations of persons with disabilities, and served as IDA Chair from May 2004 -May 2005. She is well regarded within IDA and the newly created IDA CRPD Forum, of which RI serves as the Secretariat.

RI President Michael Fox remarked, “We are extremely pleased that Venus will be joining the RI team. She will be leading the RI Secretariat at a critical time in our growth, with the focus on implementation of the UN Convention and growth of the RI Foundation. We very much look forward to working with her and sharing her insights and experience.”

RI will formally welcome Venus as our new Secretary General during the RI World Congress, to be held in August 2008 in Quebec City, Canada. For more information about this event, please visit www.riquebec2008.org

RI also takes this opportunity to show our great appreciation to the current Secretary General, Tomas Lagerwall of Sweden. Since joining the RI Secretariat in 2001, Tomas has further developed excellent relations with RI membership in many countries, and has provided key support to the development of IDA. Tomas played an important role during the successful negotiations and coming into force of the CRPD. Tomas has demonstrated an enormous dedication to RI, and the RI Executive Committee and members most sincerely thank Tomas for his seven years of service to RI. 

About RI
Founded in 1922, RI is a global network of organizations of persons with disabilities, government agencies, service providers, researchers and advocates promoting and implementing the rights and inclusion of persons with disabilities.

Equal Opportunity for All: Teaching Disability Rights in the Caribbean

Posted on 2 June 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Cross-Disability, Education, Employment, Human Rights, Inclusion, Latin America & Caribbean, Resources | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Disabled Peoples’ International (DPI) North America and the Caribbean (NAC) has released a guide that can be used to educate the general public about disability etiquette and the disability rights movement. The 33-page booklet, entitled Equal Opportunities for All: Respecting the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (PDF format 551 Kb), is targeted at people in the North American and Caribbean regions who are new to disability. But most of its information is broad enough that it may be useful for people in other regions as well.

International development professionals new to disability issues may find this guide helpful in answering questions they were too embarassed to ask disability advocates directly. Disability advocates may find the booklet’s simple, accessible language and clear information helpful in their public outreach campaigns.

The booklet defines “disability”; describes what a “barrier free” world would look like; and recommends appropriate language to use when referring to people with disabilities. It also shares basic advice for etiquette useful for people who have little to no prior experience interacting with disabled people. For example, it encourages readers to speak directly to a person with disabilities–not to their friend, aide, or interpreter. It also shares more specific advice for interacting with people who are blind; deaf; have specific learning disabilities; have intellectual disabilities; use a wheelchair; or who have psycho-social (psychiatric) disabilities.

Subsequent sections of the booklet tackle topics such as mainstreaming in education; how to make schools, places of employment, and the community more accessible; and the new Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The guide presents arguments for why everyone (not just people with disabilities) should care about accessibility.

People unfamiliar with the disability-oriented resources available in the Caribbean region will want to turn to this booklet’s listing of organizations and schools in Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago. (Want to find more disability-related organizations? Try checking other We Can Do posts that point to specific organizations or to resources for finding them.)

A glossary in the back helps people new to disability issues understand basic terminology such as “accommodation.”

You can download the booklet (PDF format, 551 Kb) at:

http://caribbean.dpi.org/Equal%20Opportunities%20for%20All%20-%20May%2008%20Update.pdf



I first learned about this handbook via the Disabled Peoples’ International electronic newsletter. I gathered further detail by skimming the guide itself.

NEWS: Philippine Initiative Promotes CRPD Ratification

Posted on 4 March 2008. Filed under: East Asia Pacific Region, Human Rights, News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

A disability organization, Katipunan ng Maykapansanan sa Pilipinas, Inc.(KAMPI), launched a new initiative in late January that promotes ratifying and implementing the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in the Philippines. The initiative has been dubbed “Ang Maykapansanan: Karapatan at Kinabukasan” (Our Rights, Our Future).

Once the CRPD enters full legal force, it will become the first legally-binding, international treaty to protect the human rights of disabled people. Other international human rights instruments either do not address disabled people, or are not legally binding, or both.

(Side note: I was reminded recently that to some people, “convention” means “meeting.” But not in this context! Here, a “convention” is an agreement! So basically, the CRPD is a legally binding agreement among the ratifying countries to pass and implement laws that protect a wide range of human rights for people with disabilities. Ratifying countries also agree to abolish laws that violate the rights of disabled people. Signing a treaty is not the same as ratifying it: signing a treaty is not legally binding, but is a first step toward ratification.)

KAMPI is a member of Disabled People International (DPI), a global federation of national organizations of people with disabilities in 142 countries and territories. DPI, a cross-disability organization, has been heavily involved in promoting the CRPD. Among other things, DPI has created a ratification toolkit and also an implementation toolkit, both targeted at grassroots disability advocates who want to persuade their governments to sign, ratify, and implement the CRPD.

Accessibility CONFERENCE: Techshare India 2008

Posted on 18 December 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Cross-Disability, Events and Conferences, Inclusion, South Asian Region, technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The Techshare India 2008 Conference titled “Breaking the Barriers” is a conference and exhibition on accessibility targeted at people with disabilities, the corporate and government sectors, non-government organizations (NGOs), educators, and product producers. The conference will be held February 4 and 5, 2008, at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.

The conference is meant to allow participants to share insights and knowledge; network with professionals in the field from around the world; and meet people with disabilities working with assistive technology at the first known Experiential Lab at Techshare India. This is a pan-disability (i.e., all disabilities) conference and exhibition aimed at addressing barriers present in the mindset of people; infrastructure; education; and technology. The goal is to break down barriers and include people with disabilities into mainstream society.

To learn more, please go to http://www.barrierbreak.com/conferenceregistration.php

Need funding to attend conferences like this one? Be aware that available funding will be limited and cannot help everyone. Each funding source has its own criteria for determining who is or isn’t eligible for possible funding and for what purposes, so read carefully. Information at https://wecando.wordpress.com/2007/11/29/funding-for-conference-participation-from-developing-nations/

Finding Local Disability Organizations

Posted on 28 July 2007. Filed under: Resources | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Many mainstream development organizations would like to include more disabled people in their programs. They may agree, wholeheartedly, with disability advocates who say that entrepreneurs with disabilities, too, deserve access to microfinance services. Or that young disabled adults deserve access to information they can use to protect themselves from HIV/AIDS. Or that disabled children have the right to go to school.

Unfortunately, this inclusion does not happen nearly as often as it should. There are a great many different reasons why–too many for me to address them all in one blog post. But one common reason that program directors give is simply this: “We want to include disabled people, but we don’t know how to find them.”

This challenge may be easier to tackle than you think. You can often find disability-oriented organizations even in some of the poorest countries. In many cases, these may even include organizations run by people with disabilities themselves. These can be invaluable resources for mainstream development organizations that wish to be more inclusive. First, they can help you answer the question, “How do we find them?” by helping you with recruitment efforts. Second, they can help advise you on how to make your project activities more accessible to participants with disabilities.

I will probably post some links to a great many smaller, or more specialized, or more local disability-oriented organizations in the months to come. But for now, here are a few international, cross-disability organizations that have many contacts with local disability communities in developing countries around the world:

http://www.miusa.org
Mobility International USA: This is the organization I frequently turn to when I am looking for contacts with disabled people in developing countries. They have extensive listings of local resources helpful to disabled people in developing countries and to organizations seeking to help them. They also can offer consultation and training to international development organizations that are striving to be more inclusive of people with disabilities in their programs.

In particular, see their International Development page. Also consult their extensive database of international, national, and local disability-oriented and disability run organizations at http://www.miusa.org/orgsearch.

MIUSA is also a good place to start in finding general advice and checklists on how to make your organization more inclusive of people with disabilities. Some of the people who work at MIUSA are fluent in Spanish.

http://www.dpi.org
Disabled People International: DPI’s web site is available in English, French, or Spanish. DPI is a network of national organizations or assemblies of disabled people committed to human rights and the social and economic integration of disabled people. In the left-hand navigation bar, check links to “locations” including headquarters, regional offices, and national assemblies. Many of these organizations, in turn, may be able to help you in finding more local or specialized organizations.

http://www.handicap-international.org
Handicap International: Handicap International, which has headquarters in Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA, has programs in more than 60 countries around the world. It works with people with disabilities to support them in their efforts to become more self-reliant.

http://www.riglobal.org
Rehabilitation International: This global organization brings together people with disabilities, NGOs (non-government organizations), government agencies, service providers, and advocates to advance the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities around the world. Their membership directory is available in Word Document format at http://riglobal.org/membership/documents/RI_Directory2007_Feb07_003.doc (the 2007 version is 576 KB. It took only a few seconds for me to download it with my high-speed connection. But if you have a slow modem, it will take longer. Estimate about 5 minutes on a 28k modem.)


NOTE: This entry has been revised since it was first posted. On November 16, 2007, I edited the MIUSA listing to add a direct link to their database of DPOs. On Dec 17 ’07, I updated Rehabilitation International’s web site address. On June 19 ’08, I updated the link to MIUSA’s international development page.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
