A commitment on the rights, freedom, dignity and inclusion of people with disabilities was endorsed today in a summit hosted by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID). This summit was organized as a satellite event in connection with the Global Disability Summit which will take place on July 24 in London to mobilize global commitments on disability.
The summit was organized in collaboration with the Special Talent Exchange Programme (STEP) and Sight savers. A large number of representatives of Disabled Persons Organizations (DPOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government, media and donors attended the event and discussed measures to improve the lives of those living with any form of disability.
A two day consultation workshop was organized by Special Talent Exchange Programme (STEP) in collaboration with Ministry of Planning, Development & Reforms to develop a “Charter of Demands” on June 27-28, 2018 in Islamabad.
