Persons with disabilities were put in the spotlight at Hot Pink Catwalk Charity Show that was held at Imperial Mall, Entebbe on Saturday.

Held under the theme, “breaking myths”, the fashion show which is now in its second edition aimed to debunk stereotypes and myths about the differently abled persons that perpetuate inequality by exposing the artistic and creative talents of persons with disabilities.

Addressing guests at the fashion show, Michelle Omamteker, the Executive Director Malengo Foundation emphasized the need for inclusive development so as to enable every individual in society realise their full potential.

“Inclusive development is who we are about!” She stated. “Development says lets move forward, but  inclusive development says lets move forward and ensure that no one is left behind.”

“When we focus on inclusive development we see how much society is losing out on. In order to leave no one behind especially regarding disability issues and disability rights, we must focus on eclipsing development at every discussion of the development agenda.” She added.

Malengo Foundation is a youth-led organization actively participating in creatively propagating all the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (The Global Goals) to youth across the African continent with specific reference to Goal 10 for Reduced Inequalities.
