    Hello, everyone , I hope you are doing great?
    I have lived with a disability now for 20 years all these years no one ever shared to me what disability is , and my personal rights as a disabled person,I am very much sure that there are a lot of persons in my country who are living with a disability yet no idea of what disability is.When I got to think about it tears were just dropping , Thinking of how many are still not informed by people who does advocacy on this part of the world very unfortunate and can't blame anyone,Have to do a part in a small way to touch someone.the question is how?
    1.Social media -Informing friends so that we understand what disability is , different kind of disability,
    2.Come up with a team.
    3.Produce comic booklets on disability rights which will be distributed to schools,hospitals,public institutions and private companies
    4.Radio, TV and Newspapers to reach to various audience.
    I am very much open to any ideas on how best to carry out campaign
