Inclusive India Initiative Competition - Progressing towards an Inclusive Society for all
Last Date- Jul 05,2017 00:00 AM IST (GMT +5.30 Hrs)

Self advocates are those who are taking control of their own lives, including being in charge of their own medical needs. The self-advocacy movement is about people with disabilities speaking up for themselves and motivating others to take charge of their lives too. It means that although a person with a disability may call upon the support of others, the individual is entitled to be in control of their own resources and how they are directed. It is about having the right to make life decisions without undue influence or control by others.
