Willing and Able: Our road map for the future
On 10th June 2015, a group of us at Point Of View mapped the second phase of Willing And Able, a programme that empowers women with disabilities. We consolidated our long-term goals and developed a plan of action, envisioning a future where a woman with a disability is supported not only by herself but also by her family, peers and community.
Our program will centre women with disabilities, while also paying attention to her social and cultural environment. We will focus on opening up spaces – physical, conceptual, community, psychological – for her, and for her sexuality, and we will ensure that she has equal access to information, knowledge and love, so that she can claim her agency and celebrate the joy of being herself.
