Award: CAMPAIGN AWARDS \ C29. Public Education

In Malaysia, it is estimated that about 443,500 people have some form of disability and most of them struggle to find work. The entrance of e-hailing presented new income opportunities for them. However the introduction of new e-hailing regulation by the Malaysian government, threatened the newfound livelihoods, where by default, the regulation disqualifies them for the e-hailing public service vehicle license application. This discriminatory rule meant that our 264 driver-partners and other PWDs would lose the chance to make a living. Through our #BreakTheSilence initiative, we sought to spotlight PWD’s plight and promote greater inclusivity in Malaysia.
