Individuals with disabilities should be provided reasonable
accommodations to continue higher education. It is nice to hear that
Fiji has taken some steps towards this direction. What do you think of
the role of the organizations of persons with disabilities? While
looking at the situation, sometimes I feel that GOs, I/NGOs have put
less emphasis on higher education and therefore many individuals with
significant disabilities are not able to continue receiving quality
higher education. Equally important issue therefore would be how
stakeholders that includes DPOs can work together to remove not only
financial but infrastructure related barriers.
