FCS supports training on the 2006 UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disability

The people with disability in the country have been urged to participate in all development processes that are in line with their limits of capabilities.

Speaking at a two-day training workshop held at Ifakara township in Kilombero, chair of Tanzania League of the Blind (TLB) Greyson Mlanga has said it is better the people with disability participate in development processes so as to rid the community with a stereotype that the people with disability are mere beggars.

Mlanga said cooperation amongst people with disability associations is the only way to make a breakthrough in life. He also emphasized on the attainment of correct records of people with disability so as to help their course and development.

In the training that brought together various stakeholders – including district council members, coordinators and representatives of people with disability associations, Mlanga took the opportunity to explain on the importance of helping the entire community to understand and respect the rights of people with disability in accordance to the UN convention.

The training was organised by TLB in Kilombero and has impacted stakeholders from Ifakara, Kibaoni, Kiberege and Kisawasawa wards through funds from the Foundation for Civil Society.
