Launch of ACCESS

This week saw the launch of the Australia Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable and Sustainable Services (ACCESS) to which the Maryknoll Deaf Development Programme was invited.

Several officials spoke and there was a panel discussion on how this program can impact projects to address gender-based violence and the needs of people with disabilities.
DDP brought several of its staff to the event
and also provided the sign language interpreting (right).
Seven members of a dance troupe (many of them former DDP students) from Epic Arts offered a performance with performers both with and without disabilities.
