Africa UNITE! Today is Africa Day and we are reminded by Article 7 of the UNCRPD which highlights that we shall take all necessary measures to ensure the full enjoyment by children with disabilities of all human rights and fundamental freedoms on an equal basis with other children. Therefore the rights and freedom of Deaf children to access education cannot be ignored. As we celebrate Africa Day 2018, let us unite as an Africa nation and build a better Africa that includes equal opportunities for our Deaf children. Empowering Deaf children in Africa through knowledge! Suzette Willemse, CEO, DeafNET Centre of Knowledge.
