I attended a session at the 4th Africa Conference on Sexual Health and Rights (AFSHR) talking about people living with disabilities and I was really touched. I realize that in Cameroon everything that is done at the level of sexual and reproductive health and rights (themes like violence against women; HIV/AIDS…), people living with disabilities are usually relegated to the backup plan, and even forgotten.

I also realize that as a peer educator myself I use to do work on sensitization in schools and youth associations but I never thought of rehabilitation centers.

Also, considering the fact that the percentage of violence against women that young women and girls living with disabilities are facing is higher than for able-bodied women and girls – the $1000 Young Visionaries contest grant, will help me to lead a special program targeting people living with disabilities and also orphans.
