Accessible Pakistan is one of the milestone achievements of SSP. It is the biggest campaign based on the advocacy for rights of PWDs in Pakistan.
Society for Special Persons leadership introduced National Accessibility Day on October 22, 2011 which aimed at spreading awareness and among decision making authorities, so that the problems and needs of PWDs such as transport and other required services could be highlighted, addressed and catered.
According to a report published by WHO 15% of the population consists of PWDs. In Pakistan, schools, colleges, universities, commercial plazas, parks and mosques and other places of worship, even public transport are not accessible. PWDs are dependent on wheelchair assistance due to absence of Ramps and are unable to help themselves. Therefore, PWDs prefer staying home, to avoid being assisted everywhere.
In a very short span of time, Accessible Pakistan campaign gained popularity among PWDs across the country, the fruitful results of which brought about building of ramps at PIA Multan, Metro, Speedo bus, governmental buildings, mosques, historical building of Dam Dama, and public restrooms.
SSP also met with the Chief Manager of State Bank of Pakistan, Mr.Javaid Iqbal Marath with the motive of accessible banking. In order to promote social participation and progress of PWDs State Bank of Pakistan released a policy circular (Accessible Banking Infrastructure for Special Persons) which required all governmental and private banks to build ramps and install talking ATMs to make banking accessible for PWDs.
