Aiming high

Young Voices campaigners in Sri Lanka are determined to persuade their government to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and to raise awareness of the issues faced by people with disabilities to high level officials and ambassadors. Through sheer determination and hard work, they have managed to meet and speak to 15 high level Sri Lankan and foreign government representatives. Several of these officials have gone on to speak, write and lobby on the Young Voices’ behalf about disability issues and the need for full inclusion.

Congratulations and we wish you well Young Voices Sri Lanka!
