ONE IS SIGNIFICANT
Create better awareness through action
What problem does your idea solve?
- access to basic services; education
- long lasting awareness
Explain your idea
Globally there is strong commitment to insure equal access to education for every children with disability. Every year in December disability day is being celebrated worldwide, with continuous promise to leave no one behind. Various awareness raising activities with huge financial investment are undertaken, various conferences and panel discussions held. Definitely these activities have an impact on awareness creation.
But acting is always a problem, mainly in developing countries. such awareness's seems to be short lived. as there are limited actions taken to insure disable people mainly children access basic services.
this idea is aimed at creating sustainable and long lasting awareness at local level through action.
- disable child will get access to mainstream education
- families of disabled and community will get better awareness
How is your idea unique?
For years Figures/numbers/percent have been considered as precondition to initiate certain interventions for persons with disability. Or disabled children must be taken to certain centers (so that there number becomes ‘’significant’’) to provide required educational intervention. That is considered the efficient and cost effective way. This is the widely accepted, and internalized rule.
With this understanding an individual child with disability in rural village never been a concern for most partners involved, because he/she is one in number, and that is not significant. This is the common fallacy.
this idea works to change that by giving attention to one disabled child.
present awareness creations are costly and short lived, awareness created through such idea will last for long.
