The person-centered “Challenged Expedition” is a social/humanitarian values and impact creation driven event. It is a purposeful educational, leisure, recreation, outdoor, sightseeing, excursion, social, intercultural, diversity management, entertainment, sports, active and healthy living and lifestyles field trip/tour.
The person-centered “Challenged Expedition” is organized and hosted annually by the Ghana based Social Enterprise, Kra Integrated Solutions Ltd (KIS Travel) for Persons with Special Needs/Disabilities, Reduced Mobility and/or Physically Challenged free of charge on every World Tourism Day, September 27th, as part of activities, events and programs to celebrate World Tourism Day.
Persons with Special Needs/Disabilities, Reduced Mobility or Physically Challenged are among the poorest, needy, vulnerable, marginalized, underprivileged, deprived and minority groups in Ghana. They are often taken for granted segment within communities and society. And unfortunately, are predominantly confined to the periphery of economic, social, political, cultural, community, societal and developmental structures.
Not surprisingly, this group faces enormous diverse human/minority rights challenges, difficulties and/or barriers within Ghana.
The person-centered “Challenged Expedition" in essence, seeks to serve as a formidable platform to promote, support and strengthen public relations, soft diplomacy, storytelling, education, information dissemination, outreach, awareness creation and sensitization. And aimed to bring into international/national limelight, focus and attention these tremendous challenges confronting Persons with Special Needs/Disabilities, Reduced Mobility and/or Physically Challenged.
Especially, the extremely pathetic mobility, buildings, transportation, spaces, other facilities, amenities and infrastructure including and in particular tourist sites, attractions, locations and other places of interest accessibility.
