Last Night’s Talk Shows: New disabilities fund + directives in the spotlight

SMART POLICY- President Abdel Fattah’s announcement of new directives aimed at better inclusion of individuals with disabilities at an event yesterday was in the limelight on last night’s talk shows. The directives include accounting for the needs of people with disabilities in the infrastructure-focused Decent Life initiative, expanding training of teachers to equip them to teach special needs students, and setting up training programs for people with disabilities to enter the job market. The president also called on his government to set up a dedicated “Differently-Abled Fund” for special needs citizens and draft legislation to allow and regulate donations for the fund.

The president’s directives earned praise and coverage from Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 5:28), Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa (watch, runtime: 6:57), Al Hayah Al Youm’s Lobna Assal (watch, runtime: 4:54), and El Hekaya’s Amr Adib (watch, runtime: 2:23).
