'Don't Overlook Me' Campaign for the Physically Challenged by TARC Penang

Hey guys, do you have any friends who are physically challenged and reside in Penang? Here's a good campaign for them. 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.

So 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, we hope to channel a message that the talents and abilities of the physically challenged can benefit business financially and organizationally. Besides, we will have the public to participate in several mini games together with them as personal involvement creates and enhance the understanding between both parties. 

The event collaborated 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.
