We are pleased to announce that the August RESULTS Conference call will take place on Tuesday 7th August at 8pm. Our guest on the call will be Anne Wafula-Strike. Anne was the first female East African Paralympian to compete in a Paralympic Games. Click here to download the action materials.
In September this year the UK will host the Paralympic games, the pinnacle of a life time of training for many disabled athletes. This provides us a unique opportunity to bring the issue of disabled children’s exclusion from education to the attention of the British Public and our elected representatives.
With over 20 million disabled children still being systematically excluded from education, our timing could not be more opportune. This month we will be working with Anne Wafula-Strike to get Op-Eds published in the UK media on the subject of inclusive education, and we will be using those op-eds to influence the UN Secretary General’s new initiative on education. The Action Materials can be accessed here.
