Welcome to our "DiSA News Network (DNN)" page.
DISA’s News Network (DNN): Inspires, Educates, Entertains and Empowers via our "Laugh At Life" - Cartoons; YouTube Channel; Facebook Page; Facebook Group and future Blog and Newsletter platforms, driving change and Inspiring persons with disabilities to be the best version of themselves.
As South Africa’s Premium and Free Disability Information Portal DiSA has identified an urgent need to not only Inform persons with disabilities on what services and products are available to assist them through our Information Desk, but to also Identify and log barriers to access through our Yes to Access - platform and then Address and remove these inequalities, discrimination and barriers through our Accessible Cities-South Africa (AC-SA) platform. Via our DiSA’s News Network (DNN), DiSA will Empower all persons with disabilities to live their lives to the fullest potential and then celebrate their achievements.
DiSA On Air
Over the last 6 to 7 years DiSA have featured in a number of Newspaper Articles; Webinars; Radio and TV Interviews and Programs. Through these interviews and articles, we hope to not only promote the free service that we offer persons with disabilities but also create awareness for persons with disabilities, their rights and the need for accessible environments.
"A Laugh At Life" - Cartoons
"Laughter is the best medicine" - Living with a disability can be difficult and can lead to depression, it sometimes helps to see the lighter side of our disabilities and the people who don't understand them. Through various Cartoons and animated videos by Alan Downey we aim to bring awareness to the many barriers that persons with disabilities face on a daily basis.
