Put disability at the heart of devolved government
1. Calling all persons with disabilities and DPOs
Please help Action Network for the Disabled (ANDY) to put disability issues at the centre of devolved government in Kenya. A government task force is asking what you think about a range of issues, including how the government should communicate with you, how you could be encouraged to participate and how devolved government should be made accountable.
Please help us make the most of this great opportunity to make sure that devolved government's structures bring to life some of the gains persons with disabilities have made in the constitution.
ANDY has attended public meetings to lobby on behalf of persons with disabilites, asking for - among other things - better communications in formats we can understand, meetings in disability-friendly public buildings, better access to education, and to make sure persons with disabilities are represented at all levels of government.
We are now writing a report to give to the task force which will contain the views of persons with a range of disabilities and the organisations which represent them. So please answer the questions below and make sure ANDY can tell the government hears your views.
