International Day of People With Disabililty

Enable Development awarding Mano Karan a 2015 fellowship for development of the Enable Singapore Initiative

Today is International Day of People With Disability.

A United Nation sanctioned day that aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.

In our own way, Enable Development has awarded our first fellowship to end the year and kick off 2015. This fellowship is awarded to Mano Karan, a teacher and passionate individual with lived experience of disability from Singapore.

Together with Mano, we are expanding the impact of our education initiative to educate the community about disability in Singapore, with future plans to reach its regional countries.

This is a significant event for us as its one step closer to reaching our vision of a world where the values of people with disability are respected, so that we are empowered to make an impact as members of our global community.

We’ll be going through big changes and updates over the summer break so watch this space.
