Disability advocacy

Disability AdvocacyThe VSDP carries out disability advocacy through community and awareness programs relating to disability and the promotion of rights of people with disabilities. We run workshops both in communities and workplaces on the rights of people with disabilities. We work closely with the Vanuatu government to ensure it is fulfilling its commitment to uphold the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, ratified in 2006.

VSDP is also an active member of the Vanuatu Civil Society Disability Network, a group of local and international NGOs who work in the area of disability. The network facilitates collaboration and joint action between its members so we can advocate effectively to decision makers and contribute to greater positive change for people with disabilities.
