TANDO ADAM: (03-10-2018) NDF & Awaz Foundation conducted a session on SRHR under Ujala project with persons with disabilities in Tando Adam, District Sanghar. During the session Mr. Abid Lashari CEO NDF said that People with Disabilities are facing societal discrimination at all level. No one encourages & guides persons with disabilities to live with dignity, getting education, learning of vocational trade for work, offering job at job-placements to play his/her role positively as contributor in the society. It is assumed & realized to persons with disabilities that he/she cannot do anything because of his/her disability. It is mostly witnessed that physical, attitudinal torture or harassment is common for persons with disabilities, making jokes about his/her disability, no inclusion at social events, shut up calls at social gatherings. The Sexual Harassment also witnessed in different places especially girls with hearing, impairment & Intellectual disability. The cases are not reported no one takes interest to pursue the cases because disabled girls are not priority list of parents. The Sindh government has formed law on disability in 2018 which discourage discriminations, covers legal support for unwanted physical & sexual harassment at home, society or workplace. The Sindh Government has Disability affairs Department under title “Department of Empowerment of persons with disabilities” Karachi. We should reach out this department for against all odds i.e discrimination in jobs, inequality, social harassment, discrimination for General & Vocational Education, Health & Rehabilitation of Children. The participants were encouraged to face all kind of challenges to be contributor in the society.
