Happy International Day for Persons with Disabilities 

The theme for 2017:

Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all.

YES WE CAN’!!

The International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) had decided in 2015 to observe Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Day on 5th September, every year, with the intention of increasing awareness amongst the General Public. It is anticipated that the awareness would facilitate an inclusive life for persons with disability and ensure greater chances of success of prevention programmes.

This year the Day will be celebrated with the theme ‘Yes We Can’! The theme has been chosen to highlight the ability amongst disabilities of persons with SCI. Social integration and awareness amongst the General Public and administrators would help uplift the condition of persons with SCI. People may be able to understand the importance of prevention programmes better and thus help disseminate the information amongst masses.

Across the globe, many people who need assistive technology do not have access to it. 

70 million people who need a wheelchair and only 5% to 15% of those in need who have access to one.

We real appreciate Songambele friends' for your support, once again you have changed someones' life.

 

Songambele promotes the economic empowerment of women so that they can live independently as well as support their families. This is done through the establishment of income generation activities, creating access to small grants and credit schemes as well as equipping beneficiaries with basic skills to manage their own projects.

The launch of the first African Spinal Cord Injury Network (AFSCIN) was held in Botswana in November 2015

The second AFSCIN 2 hosted at Holiday Inn City Centre Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania from 30 March - 1 April 2017

Objectives:

1. The current status of SCI management in Africa

2. Future planning for SCI management in Africa

3. Practical workshops on the management of SCI

Kwa pamoja tusonge mbele!

The 2017 theme for International Women’s Day, 8 March, focuses on “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”

Day well spent by raising our voices as one team; Together we can move on forward!!
