Shabir commented on Linking Persons With Disabilities with Opportunities

Dear BobAchgill,
You are putting forward a great work and really interesting idea.This idea will create a treasure of words signs which will be used by the people with disabilities (deaf) and teachers at their communities around the world.We would also try our best to include our part from Pashtu language. Pashtu is a language spoken in FATA,Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province,Baluchistan and Afghanistan.Keep it up great work

Dear Gul,
Nice to read your feedback and comments.Yes this is the harsh reality that FATA areas has been suffered alot during internal conflicts and terrorism. People have lost their lives,livestock,infrastructure and all their belongings.Beside this 20-30 % people are yet to be return to thier homes as conflicts and operations is going on in some areas of FATA. During this deteriorating situation,PWDs are the most vulnerable and ignored segment at our communities. They even become burden on their families during displacement dislocation from FATA areas.Keeping in view the above crucial realities,we along with OpenIDEO want to contribute for the betterment of PWDs and to be able to reduce their sufferings .There are alot of things need be done for the welfare and empowerment of PWDs but we will be focusing mainly on three areas while implementing this disability challenge .1.Economic empowerment- through skills development trainings 2-Awareness and Sensitization- through conducting advocacy events,sensitization sessions in the villages and communities level and Mass awareness spreading Key messages on FM redio Khyber. 3-Provision of Wheel Chairs for the most poor and vulnerable PWDs. Hope you will support and join our work at Bara Khyber Agency
