Ms. Rehana Khan
Rehana Khan, a person with disability and a motivational speaker for youth hosts the Radio Show. Passionate about helping fellow PWD to overcome the challenges they face, she has been a participant in a number of radio shows that have centered on Disability awareness. Rehana believes the radio show is a great platform to reach the masses and discuss their experiences. “The show gives me an opportunity to interact with other PWD through live calls.
We share experiences and have open discussions. I had always wanted to host such a show and was delighted when this project came along.” she says.
The PWD community recognizes the show as informative and motivating. Rustam Ali Khan, a small-business owner from Sindh has been a regular PWD caller. “There are no such programs exclusively running for PWDs in my area.” he says. “Telenor Pakistan has taken a big step and should continue with their efforts for the disabled community.”
Hafiz Sajid-ur-Rehman, a visually-impaired government employee from Rawalpindi adds on by sharing his experience. “It is discouraging to have society constantly challenge PWDs to prove their worth. We have a right to be treated fairly and be provided with the same opportunities as everyone else. This show provides us with a platform where our voices are heard”.
