Awareness Campaign on discovering talents of the physically challenged

People who are physically challenged are often shunned and looked upon as not being able to contribute to society in a meaningful way. The physically challenged in this context, refers to people who have physical disabilities or impairment, especially one that limit mobility. As such, this misperception must be corrected. Unhampered by their disabilities, many who physically challenged are able to overcome all odds in order to prove that they are equally capable as the rest of us in the society. “When there is a will, there is a way”, what they need is a chance.

So the Year 1 students from Advanced Diploma in Mass communication (Public Relation) from Tunku Abdul Rahman College, Penang Branch Campus (TARC) is organizing an awareness campaign on discovering talents of the physically challenged entitled “Don’t overlook me” on 20 July 2013 from 11.00 am to 3pm at Penang, Straits Quay.

It will be a one day event, serving as a platform to unveil the talents of the physically challenged people through stage performance and exhibition of their crafting skills. Through this, it is hoped to channel a message that the talents and abilities of the physically challenged can benefit businesses in both the financial and organizational context. Besides, the public will have a chance to participate in several mini games together with them as personal involvement creates and enchance the understanding between both parties.

The event will collaborate with a few welfare organizations to raise the awareness among the stakeholders which includes Society of the Disabled Person Penang (SDPP), Joblink Centre: Society For The Aid To The Handicapped, Penang Dead Association, ST Nicholas Home, Eden Handicapped Service Centre, Penang Cheshire home, Penang Handicapped Welfare Association and SIMA Handicapped centre.
