I too have a voice!

Today, December 3rd, is the International Day of People with Disabilities. Words like DIGNITY, EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES, INCLUSION, ACCESSIBILITY, RESPECT or NON-DISCRIMINATION must turn into deeds!

Today, more than ever, we remember professor Vasile Adamescu, who said: ”I hope that through my example, I can help people in difficult situation, inspire people with disabilities and convince the society that we too can be useful.”

Today is the day when, more than ever, the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities must prime:

  • Respect for inherent dignity, individual autonomy including the freedom to make one’s own choices, and independence of persons;
  • Non-discrimination;
  • Full and effective participation and inclusion in society;
  • Respect for difference and acceptance of persons with disabilities as part of human diversity and humanity;
  • Equality of opportunity;
  • Accessibility;
  • Equality between men and women;
  • Respect for the evolving capacities of children with disabilities and respect for the right of children with disabilities to preserve their identities.

Only together can we do this! All the best wishes to all people with different abilities, to their families and dear ones!

Sense International Romania launches the campaign I TOO HAVE A VOICE! Children ad young people with deafblindeness from partner schools will prove they have a voice, making videos about one or more of the rights of people with disabilities as they are described in the UNCRPD.

This campaign is part of the project called Education with Sense International, funded by Nelumbo Foundation. Implemented in 2020-2023, the project aims to organise activities with children and young people with deafblindness from Romania, promoting their own rights themselves, as well as to develop an online course in the field of deafblindness.

The campaign regulations will be available soon and sent by email to all Sense International Romania partner schools.
