Walking for rights

Young Voices campaigners from Botswana took part in a seven kilometer walk to raise awareness of the rights of people with disabilities. A big mix of people walked alongside each other including tribal leaders, councilors, civil servants, people with disabilities and members of the public. At the end of the walk, participants gathered together and were addressed by Young Voices campaigners and several other speakers.

The walk took place in August in Serowe Village, Central District of Botswana. It was organised by Young Voices in conjunction with the Tshidilo Rehabilitation Centre, The Central Association for the Blind and Disabled and the Kopano Rehabilitation Foundation.
