Vibhu Sharma joins Thierworld

One of ardent supporters of ICEVI West Asia has joined Theirworld, a UK charity that was started by Sarah Brown as a Disability and Inclusive Education Consultant during 2002. She would be engaged in conducting a research on inclusive education and assistive technologies for children with disabilities for the organization.

She visited USA in April, where she was invited to participate in the UN ECOSOC Youth Forum, to speak on the behalf of young people with disabilities, on the theme, “Empowered, Equal and Included’. An exciting part of her visit to the US that just before participating in a panel discussion with the Vice-President of the World Bank, Human Capital Project, and others on early childhood education and prioritizing inclusion of children with disabilities in pre-primary education,  organized by Theirworld and UNICEF, she had the opportunity to meet and interact with the former UK Prime Minister, His Excellency, Gordon Brown, who is the UN Envoy on Education. HE Gorden Brown has been very keen on promoting technology for persons with visual impairment in Africa region. Vibhu is working as member of Youth Committee of the World Blind Union.

ICEVI West Asia congratulates Vibhu on this great achievement.
