The Ghana Disability Excellence Awards ultimately seeks to give support that recognises the person ,respect their dignity and enables PWD’s to live good and deserving life’s
It is worth noting that about 10% of Ghana’s population are persons with disability , which a large number of them are often regarded as unproductive and incapable of contributing in a positive way in the society….instead of being viewed as assert they are rather seen as constituting an economic burden on family and the society at large …which leaves them with various cycle if poverty
This award scheme will not only recognise the positive impact support workers have on the lives of people with disability and their families but also a necessary platform to set an important benchmark for Excellence….
