  • Ongoing initiatives by both the government and civil society organisations for promotion of inclusive education are mainly at pre-primary, primary and secondary school levels, forgetting the higher learning institutions.
  • Legal aid/empowerment for building citizens inner power, agency and ability to influence for their rights have neglected higher learning students with disabilities.
