This year South Africa marks twenty years of democracy. A time to reflect on the achievements and challenges across the board. The area of people with disabilities should not be left behind during this review process. We need to take stock of how far we have come and award those that have achieved in this area. South Africa is also celebrating sixty (60) years of the Womens Charter of 1954.
It is in the spirit of democracy and Womens month that the Deputy Minister of Social Development is hosting a Conference for Women with Disabilities. This will be followed by a Gala Dinner on the last day to award those that have achieved in this field of work.
