Disability depends on the eyes of the beholder; a matter of perception.
Explain your idea in details:
Society comprises of diverse people;diverse in different aspects.With the movement of time,it's good to see that society is changing along with it.But,there are still certain things which needs immediate change.The change that i am talking about is,the perception of people towards the'disable people'.However,we become modern and civilized,its sad to know that still disabled person are not treated well in society.We tend to look at them differently ,not from human dimension.'Disability'might restricts person in certain way but if we given chance them to showcase their abilities,then they can definitely prove that,'Their ability is greater than that of their disability'.Some may be visual impaired,some deaf,some dumb and some lame etc. and some or the other way.Thus,their disability should not be the limitation but it should be their abilities to'change the world' for good. Knowing the fact that disable people consist of 15%of total population in the world to which as a youth myself,i see those people have greater role to a make huge impact in the world. For this,mine objective would be:1)reducing social exclusion(if possible starting from their family members)2)address barriers of equal opportunities,3)achieve community integration,4)Special provisions in the sector of education,health 5)Conduct or aware people(leadership program)through education,training(however possible)5)Equal participation in the developmental works,6)Providing unemployment pensions scheme for the time till they become employed also,employment schemes on the basis of their disabilities,6)free housing My activities for them would be:1)Conduct programs to showcase the talent of disable people.2)Sports competition on the basis of the impairment like for lame person(chess contest)not involving legs,cooking classes for deaf,dumb etc. on the basis of their interest and passion,3)Creating sense of competitions through school programs(art exhibitions)etc. My innovative approaches would be:1)Online community for disable,2)Develop app accessibility,devices for dumb,deaf like e.g.Stephen Hawking's(sensor device),personal mobility wheelchairs,security app,3)Prosthetic hands,legs,Develop software to improve loss of speech.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Impact: Visible changes in the society,in the mindset of people: My ideas look forward to improve the social condition of disable people providing equal opportunities and facilities.For this,my ideas would help to work on the ways to uplift status of disable people by uniting them together(social integration)making them realize that they are also humans like others.This agenda would "seek to realize the human rights of all" and making them 'one'. The expected impacts are:Providing them free of education would simply recognize their potential by avoiding misconception about 'disability'(turning them to be differently able) while,providing health facilities would make them physically and mentally strong.Conducting programs(sports,art,dance) as per their disability would assist them value their talents and intelligence making them more motivated.Special provisions of employment would help them to not just earn for living but also help them to develop their confidence,personality growth and to 'stand on their own feet'.Harmony between social groups resulting in delegation of work that government would feel less responsible. My targets would be: Awareness program,Government funds,initiatives (private,public sector),Grab public attention to realize their abilities,skills to bring disable people in the mainstream(their importance of role in society) by public participation,Can reduce their poverty,gender equality and mostly working to change the mindset of people,Access to rehabilitation,therapy centers,Reduces transportation fees(specially for working persons like children,adults), Measures to evaluate success would be through:1)Considering reviews from disable people,2)Through evaluation matrix(how well idea meet scale of 0-5),3)By SWOT analysis,4)Criticisms vs improvement,5)Disable people's level of satisfaction,6)Meeting goals and Planning,7)Rate of employment growth and sustainable development,8)Feedback from disable people.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
To provide equal opportunities to disable people and make them realize we are 'one' would be the sole objective of my ideas. Thus,for the effective implementation of my idea, i would look upon the areas from where we can take help. My business model would be:1)Know the society perception,2)Taking help from Non governmental organizations,and other concerning agencies,3)Consult donor agencies,4)Proposal to Government,5)Policy feedback to Government,6)Joint program for feasibility study in one particular areas,7)Count the number of disable people,8)Capacity building programs(in Universities/Colleges),9)Know their potentialities,10)Consult donor agencies. For financing source:1)Conduct programs to raise fund and work on those disable groups,2)Request Government for certain help,3)Join hand with local and public institutions,4)Mobilize media and publication so that all common people would be aware of disable people. Then, finally my ideas would work by joining hands with collaborators such as:1)Local Institutions and Organizations like UN/UNESCO,2)Take help from government,4)Business Organizations,5)Media to grab public attention and their coordination to change their mindset about disable groups of people,6)Take help from Insurance Company so that these companies would help to provide guarantee for disable groups of people and make them secure their life until the time they get employed. Therefore, my ideas would look forward to implement that 'disability is not inability, it's the ability to do things in different way'. Hence, let us spread happiness all over in the world that we all are same,and there must be 'equality for all'. I hope to set the vision , the vision of ideas that can bring change in the world.
I am Susmita Aryal.I am 19 years graduate of high school.I am always excited to do something new for the society.I come from a middle class family where there is"Equality for all, leaving no one behind";an equal opportunity for every gender despite of any disabilities.I have always been taught from my family to not to discriminate anyone because everyone is god gifted individuals with different characteristics.My family see disabilities not from narrow perspective but from wider sense as making disable people realize they are 'differently able'.We feel that every individual has a distinct individuality and unique in their own way.Hence, they should get the same opportunities,that other people are getting.They should be given the same respect,recognition,status, those who are deserving. So,i get motivation and encouragement from my family members only.Moreover,i get motivated from disable persons out there in society or community of how they beyond their reach,they have able to achieve things wonderfully that normal people cant think of.Their success stories have always been real source of inspiration to me.Besides that,i get motivated from various programs which let young people to come up with the ideas. Besides that,in my years in school i have participated in many extra activities which are important factors that dealt with the sustainable development. Like drinking water projects, gender equality,environment green, using wastage and recycling in the possible way.I have also received many awards for the ideas, theme(like save green save earth).The project of 'go green' for which i was awarded best project that led me to work on it more.Now,there many students involved in that project that work for community in my country.Though,it has not received national recognition,it is recognized by many famous institutions in my country today.
