Change a life
Egypt is a country where people with disabilities are overlooked.
Over the past four decades, both society and the political system in Egypt have evolved extremely rapidly. Since, 2011, a series of events has underlined the need for far-reaching changes in the status of young people in Egypt. Members of the Movement for the Rights of People with Disabilities, along with other stakeholders in Egyptian society, have all expressed their desire for change. They have successfully campaigned for the establishment of the National Council on Disability Affairs, an institution that now needs support in order to cement its legitimacy.
