Open Society Foundations’ “Voices”: Kazakhstan’s Neglected Children

Shakibayeva writes, “[S]upporting children with disabilities so they can enjoy their human rights is what our work is all about. We’re not asking for special privileges; we are simply demanding the state to live up to the standards of [the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,] which it’s ratified already” (3/28).
