Abia Akram, a young leader from Pakistan, has been appointed as the Global Coordinator of the Emerging Young Women Leader Network. Ganesh Singh of Guyana has been appointed as the Coordinator of the Global Youth Network.
Launching the Networks, Javed Abidi, Chairperson of D.P.I. said, “Youth are our future. We have to encourage them; bring them forward, to the forefront. They must be associated in all aspects of D.P.I.'s work. And when we talk of youth with disabilities, we cannot leave our young women with disabilities behind. They must be at the forefront too, shoulder to shoulder. This is the Mission that Ganesh and Abia will take forward.”
Both these Networks will have a global reach across the 5 Regions that D.P.I. currently has offices in: Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe, Latin America and North America & Caribbean.
