On 13 August 2012, Christian Dirk Donn, IFES AGENDA Program Manager, and Heppy Sebayang, PPUA PENCA AGENDA Program manager, visited Bangkok to give a presentation on AGENDA’s projects to the new batch of students of Institute of Disability and Public Policy (IDPP). The institute is a network of university and outreach partners focused on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region and based at American University in Washington, DC. For more information on IDPP please check this link.
Christian and Heppy met and had a dynamic dialogue with the students, who were really interested on how AGENDA’s project has been progressing in a year. Check this article here for a full report of the whole event in IDPP website.
In addition to giving presentation for IDPP students, Christian and Heppy also visited the UNESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission in Asia Pacific) office in Bangkok and met with Saowalak Thongkuay and ‘Wansao Chaiyakul’ from DPI-AP (Disabled People International Asia Pacific). Saowalak has been very supportive for AGENDA over the past year and advised the project on several matters.
