Vital Voices for Democracy

Cedar Seed Foundation has in 2012, partnered with Potters Gallery Initiative to carry out an empowerment program for people with disabilities (PWDs) using Art exhibition to present, discuss and document their electoral experiences through Democratic Governance for Development with contributions from EU, UKAID,CIDA and UNDP. The project was designed in view of the challenges around infrastructure and how most people with disability were disenfranchised due to their inability to access polling units. The event involved the people with disability doing an art exhibition that captured their own personal stories on their electoral experiences. This initiative was termed “Vital Voices for Democracy”.
