Circular of a Memorandum for the Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities and Ensuring respect for their Fundamental Rights
SUBJECT: Circular of a Memorandum for the Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities and Ensuring respect for their Fundamental Rights
The Global Rainbow Foundation (GRF) is a Charitable Trust, which aims at empowering Persons with Disabilities focusing on the latter`s ability instead of the disability. GRF proposes various solutions to encourage social inclusion instead of considering ‘disability’ as a stand-alone thematic issue. Our vision is to provide support and opportunities to the heterogeneity of the Persons with Disabilities community for holistic human development so that they can lead a rewarding life with dignity and respect in the local and global community.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” – Mahatma Gandhi
“Your Greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give” – Saint Teresa
In line with the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi and Saint Teresa, GRF is circulating a Memorandum for the Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities and Ensuring respect for their Fundamental Rights to mobilize solidarity for a cause and to highlight the socio-economic barriers faced by two vulnerable groups, namely Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and Elderly Persons. Through its advocacy, GRF is moving towards an integrated approach which goes beyond the purely supportive approach, which makes it possible to develop a comprehensive and awareness raising approach that focuses on the attitudinal and environmental barriers faced by Persons with Disabilities, in such a way as to ensure the exercise of their fundamental rights. It is necessary to realize that the needs of persons with disabilities differ greatly depending of the person’s age, the kind of disability and degree of disability, which is why degrees of coping and assistance measures vary significantly.
I invite you to read the Memorandum and the recommendations herein included and to share your comments. You can support the recommendations of the Memorandum as an organization or as an individual person and make commitment to follow the principles highlighted in it in your life and work. Kindly find the same attached.
