Project Description

The community of persons with disabilities in Guyana is well led and active in pursuing equal access for everyone. The Embassy would like to focus this year on helping them overcome social and legal barriers, and this project would add to that by keeping the topic trending on local social media. The project would require you to seek out interesting people to talk to in the US on the subject of disability rights throughout the year and help the Embassy organize virtual programs.
