Youth with disabilities second to none in talent: Qasim


Special Assistant to Sindh Chief Minister on Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, Syed Qasim Naveed Qamar has said that Nature has given so many qualities to the differently abled youth and no doubt they are second to none in talents.
He stated this while speaking as chief guest in ceremony ‘3rd Differently Abled Youth Summit Empower to Unpowered’ held at Sindh Boy Scout Association Auditorium on Saturday.
Qasim Naveed said that there was a need to change mind set on special people and we should provide them opportunities to grow and to bring out their hidden talents.
The Sindh government had taken many initiatives to provide better health care, education and vocational training to special persons through educational and rehabilitation centres, situated across the province, he informed.
He said, ‘Special CNICs and Disability Certificates are being provided to special persons on priority basis and we are making efforts for implementation of job quota fixed for special persons in public and private sectors.’
The Special Assistant to CM Sindh said that if we encouraged these special youth, no doubt they could show better results.
Qasim Naveed said that it was a matter of great pleasure that things were gradually getting better for special persons, expressing his hope that very soon they would be able to lead independent and respectable life.—INP
