Despite the many progressive statements promulgated in recent years, the extent of meaningful change in the actual quality of life of persons with disability in Africa remains limited. Even in a country with relative wealth like South Africa, with its internationally acclaimed and inclusive Constitution and its established national strategies and policies (for instance, the Integrated National Disability Strategy White Paper of 1997 and the South African Employment Equity Act 1998) the possibilities for persons with disabilities to have “equal rights and dignity” remain distressingly elusive. In South Africa, most persons with 
disabilities are not yet experiencing meaningful changes in their quality of life, in access to equal rights and in levels of community integration, despite a favourable policy environment and a limited, but supportive, research evidence base. Thus, the historical exclusion of persons with disabilities from society still persists. Real change and social development are still required to realize a truly inclusive society.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
