Sharing with you the presentation I submitted to the Nagaland Vision 2030 expert team. The team is currently in the process of preparing a roadmap vision document for the development of Nagaland over the next fifteen years.
WHAT DO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES WANT?
They want the same things that everyone else in the community wants. They want the opportunity to get a good education, get a job, lead worthwhile lives and be valued members of the society. They want to be able to go to church and worship, to go shopping, go out with family and friends, and enjoy a concert or festival celebration. They want a chance to participate meaningfully in the life of the community. They want their human rights recognised and realised. They want change and are hopeful that others will share their vision of an inclusive Nagaland that leaves no one behind, a Nagaland that enables people with disabilities to fulfil their potential as equal citizens, a Nagaland for all.
