Self-advocacy Regional Report from MENA

The self advocate movement exists because the movement is there to help them (self-advocates). If you push them they can understand but if you speak in Arabic – no.

In the future what we want is to be more in contact with self-advocates in the region. To communicate more to make the movement as a group, as a power.

The CRPD, Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disability around the world. They are there to speak for their rights. It means you have to push them to become a self-advocate all over the world, plus their friends in any country.

In my opinion, we (self-advocates) are the experts!”
