Ghana Society of Disabled wants special schools abolished

Ghana Society of the Disabled (GSD) in collaboration with Vodafone Ghana Foundation, on Wednesday organised a fund raising ceremony in Accra to support members.

Mr Alfred Quarshie, Secretary of GSD asked for the abolishment of segregated and special schools for persons with disability.

He said such schools made it difficult for people living with disability to get employment and mingle with the able persons.

Mr Quarshie said this hinders the growth and progress of persons with disability and promote discrimination.

“People living with disability are abound with talents but because there isn’t enough support from Government agencies and support groups it has made it difficult for us to come out.” He said.

Mr Quarshie called for skill training for members of the Society to help them to be self reliant and prevent stigmatisation.
