My Voice Matters: II Helping to Build Self-Advocacy in Cambodia

Inclusion International in partnership with the Komar Pikar Foundation, KPF, hosted two workshops in Phnom Penh, 6 – 7 August, 2015.

The first workshop engaged with self-advocates on building a self-advocacy movement for change. Self-advocates identified employment and poverty as two priorities.

The second workshop, with support from the UN Democracy Fund, focused on the right to political participation. Self-advocates shared their difficulties in being able to vote or exercise their right to political participation. The message from self-advocates was clear: My Voice Matters.

II Council Member, Nagase Osamu, and II’s Director of Human Rights, Policy and Global Initiatives, helped lead the workshops.
