Hullo, i would like to introduce myself to the pulsewire community. My name is Olivia Nakato, I am an attorney,working as Policy Officer for in charge of Ethics, Prevention, and Human Rights for IF Child Help in Uganda (an NGO which gives medical assistance to children with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus). I also provide free legal research and counseling for Legal Action for Persons with Disabilities (an NGO which provides legal aid to indigent disabled people in Uganda). I am a founder member of the Uganda Brain Injury Project and currently, I chair the project's steering committee. My passion is to speak out and advocate for the recognition of the rights of persons with disabilities in general (and women with disabilities in particular)in all spheres of life... to policy makers and all influential national, regional and international agencies. I do writing as a hobby and this is an opportunity for me to further develop this skill. I also enjoy reading real life experiences/motivational stories or projects.
I am looking forward to making new connections here.
