South African churches commemorate Disability Awareness Sunday on the last Sunday of August each year. This is an ideal opportunity to raise awareness in your congregation about the unique contribution which people with disabilities can make to the life of the fellowship.
The document Disability Awareness Sunday will give you background information and guidelines on making Disability Awareness Sunday an annual event in your church.
We note with gratitude the resources developed by other organisations, that were accessed on the internet and adapted for our African context. If you have ideas that you feel would enliven Disability Awareness Sunday, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org .
