#NoMoreBarriers Movement – Let’s be a voice for everyone!

January 2, 2018

2018: New Year, New Hope: Together we can make a change!

People with disabilities include a diverse group of people with a wide range of needs. More than simply encouraging people with disabilities to participate it is essential to ensure that adequate policies and accommodations are in effect to promote their inclusion in the society.

There are over one billion disabled people in the world. 90-100 million are in India alone. Yet the disabled people in India continue to be excluded.

The Accessible India campaign and RPWD 2016 have brought some changes, yet access to basic amenities that the rest of us take for granted, as a right, remains a distant dream for our disabled population.

This includes access to public transport, school and college education, watching a movie in a theatre, shopping or going to a restaurant etc. Inclusion means every person has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities.

With or without disability - You have the power and responsibility to make the society inclusive.

Join the #NoMoreBarriers Movement - A NewzHook initiative towards inclusion.

Mention 3 things that you would like to see inclusive this year! Tag 3 of your friends to do the same. Let's form a chain that helps bind us together to push for Inclusion.

Let's be a voice for everyone!
