Don't overlook me

July 10, 2013

Do you experience moments where you doubt your capabilities?
Do you experience moments when your self-confidence level is 0 and you feel invisible?

well, I do and some of these moments I just want to break down and cry my heart out
It never occurred to me that there are people out there who face all these obstacles 24/7
and if I had known it, I'm sure I will feel much blessed and try my best at absolutely everything

These people are the OKU ( physically challenged people )

The physically challenged in this context, refers to people who have physical disabilities or impairment, especially one that limit mobility.
They are often wrongly regarded by some as not being able to contribute to the society in a meaningful way. As such, such misperception must be corrected.
Unhampered by their disabilities, many physically challenged are able to overcome all odds in order to prove that they can equally capable as the rest of us in the society.
 “When there is a will, there is a way”, what they need is a chance.
Thus this "Don't overlook me" awareness campaign

the year 1 students from Advanced Diploma in Mass communication (Public Relation) from Tunku Abdul Rahman College, Penang Branch Campus (TARC) is organizing an awareness campaign on discovering talents of the physically challenged entitled “Don’t overlook me” on 20 July 2013 from 11.00 am to 3pm at Penang, Straits Quay. 
It will be a one day event, serving as a platform to unveil the talents of the physically challenged people through stage performance and exhibition of their crafting skills. 
Through this, they hope to channel a message that the talents and abilities of the physically challenged can benefit business financially and organizationally. 
Besides, they will have the public to participate in several mini games together with them as personal involvement creates and enchance the understanding between both parties. 
This is to make them feel welcome and also be a part of the community
I'm sure that if I'm one of them I would like to take part in these events and prove something out of myself
As I mentioned in my previous post, self-confidence is very important in self-development and i cannot imagine not having self-confidence in my everyday life

The event will collaborate with a few welfare organizations to raise the awareness among the stakeholders which includes:
 Society of the Disabled Person Penang (SDPP), 
Joblink Centre: Society For The Aid To The Handicapped, 
Penang Dead Association,
 ST Nicholas Home, 
Eden Handicapped Service Centre, 
Penang Cheshire home, 
Penang Handicapped Welfare Association and
SIMA Handicapped centre.  

So, you are around Penang on the 20th of July 2013 from 11.00 am to 3pm at Penang, Straits Quay
Feel welcome to join in !
Straits Quay is also a very wonderful place and I'm sure it will be a fun fun day for all of you!
