Unlocking an Inclusive Society for Persons with Disabilities in Southern Africa

The Special Olympics Malawi (SOM), Southern Africa Federation of the Disabled (SAFOD), and Federation of the Disability Organisations in Malawi (FEDOMA) are planning to endorse the Lilongwe Declaration on Intellectual Disability at a signing ceremony which has been tentatively scheduled to take place on 4 June 2014 at the FEDOMA Complex in Malawi, to be graced by the Minister of Disability and Elderly Affairs.

The event is meant to be a follow up to the successful African Leaders Forum on Intellectual Disability held in Malawi from February 9 to 11, 2014, which among other things called for enhanced networking & partnership-building amongst all the delegates that attended the forum.

    This was the most important event that I ever attended. I was trilled with the passion and political will that came from HE DR Joyce Banda who was the President at that time. Her passion for intellectual disability has put Malawi on the map.

    Let us keep the momentum. Let us keep on lobbying and engaging all stakeholders to hear our voice.


    I am a Cameroonian and a regional pedagogic inspector for guidance counselling,and we are still looking for wails of including inclusive education in our curriculum. it will be of great joy for me if you invite me to your workshop for it will empower to help my fellow Cameroonians.
