Advocacy

Voice of Specially Abled People was incorporated with the Guiding mission;

To create a global mass movement, provide VOICE and become “change-makers” for disability rights with collective thought leadership, actions and advocacy to promote the Empowerment of Specially Abled People (SAP) through Accessibility, Education and Employment.

Voice of SAP, under the leadership of Mr. Pranav Desai, has started a global mass movement of like-minded people, who have taken publicly visible pledges to take action for Specially Abled People in the VOSAP mobile App. In the past 3 years, over 8,000 volunteers and 100+ leaders have been inspired and joined our mission. This mobilization and involvement of volunteers as “Change-makers/ Advocates” for community level actions and empowering them with tools such as the VOSAP mobile app, has enabled visible, measurable impact, like Accessible Bank of Baroda branches, Accessible temple in Jamnagar and making schools accessible with Ramp and toilet for students with Disability and many more.

Voice of SAP has recently acquired  the “Special Consultative Status” with the UN ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council) and accreditation with the UN COSP. With the UN ECOSOC and COSP, Voice of SAP is working towards an inclusive and accessible world by accelerating implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN and goals of the UN CRPD (Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities) with its advocacy efforts to UN member states. VOSAP advocacy to Youth, Community, Corporate, and Governmental bodies is a multipronged approach to involve everyone to make the world a more inclusive world for ALL.
