Swaziland Young Voices Launched
The Director of Disability from the Deputy Prime Minister’s office formally launched Young Voices in Swaziland on 28 June 2010. Among the 120 people attending the launch was Mr Craig Pike, the US Ambassador to Swaziland. After watching Young Voices members present music, drama and poetry to raise awareness of the UNCRPD, Mr Pike stated that this was ‘a celebration of a push for greater understanding within the communities for people with disabilities, for gainful employment, to full education, for the rights for all individuals’. To conclude the event, the representative from the Deputy Prime Minister’s office added: ‘Once again in launching the project I reaffirm government position in observing and involving all relevant groups including the Young people with disabilities in the implementation of the Convention’.
