New Young Voices group launches in Linden, Guyana
We are happy to welcome a new Young Voices group in Linden to our growing family of Young Voices around the world. The group started off its activities with an awareness raising march and a simple ceremony to celebrate their launch.
25 people took part in the march, from the Georgetown and Linden Young Voices groups. During the march members displayed banners, chanted slogans and handed out flyers. They attracted a great deal of attention from members of the public and distributed over 500 flyers. After the march the President of Linden Young Voices chaired a short ceremony, which included talks from members of both groups. Overall the launch was a great success and the Linden Young Voices group is looking forward to raising awareness and campaigning for the rights of people with disabilities.
