Webchat: “Rights of People with Disabilities: Extending Opportunities”

The Public Affairs Section, with the support of Conadi Guatemala, invited representatives of institutions of the Government of Guatemala and the international community to participate in the webchat titled “Rights of People with Disabilities: Extending Opportunities” organized by Share America. The discussion focused on the importance of laws and education to promote the rights of people with disabilities, as well as identify actions that could work to make progress in the country. Participants also had the opportunity to discuss the challenges which still remain with regard to social inclusion in Guatemala and how each one can make a difference and help reduce those challenges and barriers.
