Empowering persons with disabilities


The NMT has launched a project to empower persons with disabilities in Namibia. The project aims to help enable them to actively participate in democratic processes and develop critical media production and literacy skills for self-advocacy.

The NMT believes that decisions concerning persons with disabilities are legitimate only if those affected by them have an equal opportunity to participate in decision-making processes. The project will establish an inclusive and accessible information-sharing platform to help beneficiaries exercise their rights to access information. Over a period of three months, the NMT plans to create a newsletter run by persons with disabilities, in which they can share multimedia content, address relevant issues, and advocate for the rights and inclusion of persons with disabilities in Namibian society. The project focuses on skills development and aims to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform for promoting access to
information and self-advocacy.
