Foundation for Justice, Development and Peace in pursuant of her mandate of developing the marginalized population, in collaboration with Irish Aid, today mounted bill boards with key electoral messages aimed at increasing civic participation of Persons with Disabilities (PWD) in electoral processes as the elections draw nearer. Some of these key messages include:
(I) Make Polling unit accessible to PWD
(ii) Persons with disability votes matters
(iii)Recruit ad-hoc staff with disabilities etc
Remember it is our duty to make deliberate efforts to remove social and cultural barriers that reinforce negative attitudes towards the participation of PWD in electoral processes.
