Ghana needs renewed mindset on disability-VOICE Ghana

Ho, Dec. 05, GNA - Mr Francis Ansong, the Executive Director of VOICE Ghana, a disability focused non-governmental organization has said Ghana needs a renewal of mindset to promote social inclusion of persons with disabilities.

He said though the country had chalked some successes in promoting the right of persons with disability, much more was left to be done, including political will in “fostering transformation towards sustainable and resilient society.”

Mr Ansong said this in a statement to commemorate this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDD), which fell on Sunday, December 03.

The Day was on the theme, “Transforming towards sustainable and resilient society for all.”

He said it was time the nation reflected on its “policies and processes” to know if they were inclusive enough not to leave anyone behind and underscored the need to have social inclusion at the heart of central and local government.

Mr Ansong appreciated the support of Ford Foundation, Open Society Initiative for West Africa, STAR-Ghana, Disability Rights Fund, ULOBA, JICA and Bezev towards social inclusion and disability rights campaign.
