Below is a series of posters on unique models of Disability in an African context, developed by the Postgraduate students of the Disability Studies Program:
Navigating disability issues in Africa and beyond......by Fadia Gamieldien
This model promotes factors to ensure that disabled people are able can carry out economic activities that are gender-specific and locally relevant within the wider cultural-political environment. Understanding each other, respect and acceptance of others will create a more suitable habitat for human kind.
CBR and Inclusive education......by Meqdad Mahmoud
I am proposing an integrated role of Community Based Workers (CBW) in education. The UN convention for people with disability has focssed people’s right to an education. However, disability as a form of diversity within society has been ignored when it comes to curriculum.
UHURU (Freedom/Libration) - Let us liberate our minds. Let us be one....by Fatima Essop
My focus is on the need for people to liberate their minds and to recognize the need for people to develop and change the way they think, perceive or make assumptions about disability and disabled people.
These posters present disability in new ways that should generate further debate and discourse to broaden their perspective.
