2019 International Day of People with Disability

Today is International Day of People with Disability. As an organisation we have prioritised inclusivity more each year and as a forever-learning organisation we know we can always do more!

The 2019 theme is ‘Promoting the participation of persons with disabilities and their leadership: taking action on the 2030 Development Agenda’. One such impressive leader is the fabulous Barma.

Barma’s vision impairment does not blur her focus on building safer communities for children where they are not bullied for being ‘different’.

Recently Barma shared her personal story of ‘orphanage life’ changing the hearts and minds of more than 60 government officials in Chitwan. She confidently asked for their commitment to create child safe communities.

Barma is a Forget Me Not Change Agent and valued member of the ETC. Team currently working on sustainable alternatives to voluntourism in Kathmandu.

The Ethical Tourism Collective is proudly supported by The Intrepid Foundation.

If you have ideas to share about how we can be more inclusive, please let us know. We love hearing your ideas!
