2030 and Counting is…

As part of 2030 and Counting we worked with communications agency On Our Radar to produce a web-documentary miniseries, ‘Missing Voices’ which portrays some of the powerful accounts found by the project’s Youth Citizen Reporters. 

Over six months, the reporters collected hundreds of inspiring untold stories that demonstrate how people with disabilities are often discriminated against and left behind in their communities. It aims to highlight the everyday challenges and stigma faced by people with disabilities, particularly when it comes to employment, healthcare and education.


"In this beautiful and expensive environment my most basic needs are not taken care of."
