Why advocacy

Why advocacy?

Perhaps the most visible evidence of our commitment to include persons with disabilities in all we do can be seen in our advocacy efforts.

OneFamilyPeople advocates for and with persons with disabilities to promote disability mainstreaming at the local, national and international level. Together, we raise awareness to change behaviours that stigmatise persons with disabilities and prevent them from letting their lights shine.

A huge part of this is empowering Disabled Persons Organisations (DPOs) to advocate for themselves. We invest in these activist groups through capacity building so that they are better equipped to provide resources and services for persons with disabilities and hold the government accountable.
