Mr. David Anyaele, Director, Centre for Citizens with Disabilities, has been selected to participate in a virtual Gold Star program in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. He is the sole candidate chosen from Africa. He was selected for his exemplary leadership skills, experience, and impact on the lives of people living with disabilities. The Gold Star Program is intended to reconnect U.S. interlocutors with the alumni of U.S. exchange programs who have distinguished themselves back home. Mr. Anyaele participated in the International Visitors Leadership Program: Marginalized Populations and Health Care in 2017. Since the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990, the United States has seen an increase in access for people with disabilities in both the workplace and communities. The ADA has also inspired countries around the world to develop their own laws for people with disabilities. Congratulations David! See Less
