Radio Program “Forgotten Rights”

As a way to raise the awareness in the community about disabilities and the problems that people with disabilities in general and women with disabilties in specific face, Radio Nisaa FM in 2012 partnered with Stars of Hope, a Palestinian organization working with disabled women's rights.

The collaboration was a series of 10 one-hour programs aired under the name “Forgotten Rights”. The shows had a team of one woman with a disability and a decision-maker presented; they discussed challenges as well as positive experiences in their lives.

The following topics were covered:

- Employment in governmental and civil organizations.
- Transportation
- Environmental Accessibility
- Vocational Training.
- Marriage and interaction in social life activities.
- Participation in the political life.
- Independent living
