Native Americans
Patricia Hibbeler, Salish and Kootenai from the Flathead Reservation in Northwestern Montana
the Chief Executive Officer of the Phoenix Indian Center, Inc., an organization with a 64-year history and the first urban based Indian Center in the Nation.
Utilizing her leadership toward workforce development, educational programming, social services and language and culture revitalization.

But the resources are still not enough. We need money for construction of school blocks; we need money for vocational training materials because we have school leavers who are learning life and vocational skills in our centres. We do not have enough resources, “she says.

This year, she invited fellow Iasa members to Malawi so they could appraise themselves with the situation.
These included Mary Csapo, Professor of Special Education at the University of British Colombia, Canada, and Mary Gale Budzisz.
Csapo, too, was touched: “It is good that I came to Malawi between July and August 2011. I have learned a lot, and will do all I can to mobilize people back home (in Canada) to do more for Malawian children. These are bricks that raise the building we all view as the future.”

Swaleha G. Mohamedali - TANZANIA

Swahela Mohamedali is the Head of Department and founder of the Special Education Needs Unit at the Jaffery Academy, Arusha, Tanzania. The four story building (of which the first 2 floors are done) caters to both inclusive and exclusive programs, equipped with a physiotherapy and occupational therapy room, and a Pre-vocational skills program. Sally trains teachers and volunteers to work in the unit.

Mwayi Trust is a locally based NGO working with communities in southern rural Malawi, near the city of Blantyre.
At the present time, I am enrolled at the University of Missouri-St. Louis in a Doctor of Education Program focusing on Special Education. I look at this opportunity to earn an advanced degree in special education as relevant and timely. I plan to return to Malawi and use my knowledge and expertise there upon the completion of my studies. Malawi, like many other countries south of the Equator recognizes the key role of including all people regardless of ability into the development process. The country is fast embracing and implementing the inclusion philosophy. The need to build capacity and expertise to support the inclusion of individuals with special needs and ensure their meaningful participation is critical.
