TUESDAY -Human Rights-We are celebrating Disability Awareness Month.

TODAY on the show we spoke to Julian Moses National Programme Manager at the Disabled People South Africa(DPSA). As we all should know that from the 3rd November-3rd December we are celebrating people with disability in South Africa as well as bringing awareness about all the different types of disabilities that we have.Julian  from DPSA mentioned almost all the disabilities that we have all the different physical disabilities such as hearing, blind as well as being in a wheelchair . She also touched based on the uncommon rather not seen  or you can say over looked disabilities such mental, learning as well as epilepsy.

Today i found out that unemployment among disabled people is also a problem as Julian explained that she has come across people with disability that have qualification for a job but are not employed.She also added that some of the people with disability  prefer or would rather would go to work than wait for the grant every month  as it is  sometimes not enough.

If you would like to know more about the rest of the different disabilities  and to also get involved you can always visit.
