Show Me Inclusion – Persons with Disabilities have Potential!

In Africa and other parts of the world, having a disability often means being poorer than other people in the community. The "End Exclusion" project believes in the potential of persons with disabilities and sets out to ensure that their human rights are respected. In the fight to end poverty as well as in society as a whole, we must include persons with disabilities!

“Show Me Inclusion” is a competition that invites people to get creative around the inclusion of persons with disabilities and submit videos, photos, story books or sketch books by the 16th of September 2012.

Persons with disabilities have the right to be equal members of society. This is often not the case – in Europe and around the world. In developing countries a young person with disability will often not have access to school, jobs or social life. Let’s show the world that it doesn’t have to be that way!

Submissions are accepted in English, German, Dutch, Slovak and Czech. The best submission will be selected by the international jury of experts from film, sport, politics and the disability movement. The winning entry will be professionally produced and used worldwide as an awareness raising tool.

Find out how to get engaged on the website of “END EXCLUSION- Let’s Enable the Millennium Development Goals”.
