Disability Awareness: Working Towards Accessibility

Having a disability, or in better terms being differently abled, means that an individual has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits their ability to do/participate in life activities. In an ableist world where it often is assumed that everyone present is able bodied, it can be extremely challenging for people who are differently abled to ask for and receive any kinds of accommodations.

A Bridge Between the Two

When do the paths of a German girl and an Ethiopian girl of the same age intersect? Not very often. Especially not if there are 8000 kilometres between them and their distinct lives. For either of them it would be near to impossible to imagine being in the other person’s shoes, even for just a day.
