I hope you are doing well.
I send you the link of the three videos that contain your testimonies in relation to the 10 years of the entry into force of the CRPD. It was really a challenge to get the accessibility of this material for its diffusion, and for that reason I can only share them now. We still find that for full accessibility there is still a way to go. The important thing is that the videos were broadcast on the United Nations networks and you are free to broadcast them in different directions. I deeply appreciate the contribution of each one of you.
I also thank those who gave their opinion for the material “10 Principles for the good treatment of girls, boys and adolescents with disabilities.” This decalogue has been the basis for the campaign that promotes a deep reflection on the subject. We have made regional launches: Asia Pacific (September 25, UNESCAP headquarters, Bangkok) and Africa (November 29, ECA headquarters, Addis Ababa). For Latin America, the launch is planned on January 11 at ECLAC, Santiago.
Truly, it has been very pleasant to be in contact forming this network.
I wish you happy holidays at the end of the year.
