Ubuntu is a South African term. There are various interpretations of the ubuntu concept, but at the heart of the concept is the idea that people are human only in relation to others. The concept has sparked considerable debate and difference of opinion In keeping with a community-based, ubuntu approach, persons with disabilities have raised disability as a human rights and a development issue indivisible from other human rights issues. It is within this context that they have tried to show how persons with disabilities have been marginalized by society at different levels. They have tried to work as a group and to network disability issues at local, regional and global levels. They have tried to combine their voices to reach the highest offices that handle global human rights issues. As a response to these initiatives, in some countries disability policies have been developed to include the needs of persons with disabilities amongst the needs of all citizens of those countries. These attempts in some areas have started to give a sporadic positive impact to the lives of some persons with disabilities. However, it seems that the quality of life for most persons with disabilities may not be changing as rapidly as has political awareness.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

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?
