Since 2002, I have lived my life trying to dedicate my energy, career, & inspiration towards doing something positive and beneficial for my global community, particularly children, persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups in the smallest way possible.

I have previously contributed my energy and precious time in India towards promoting child education and helping to fight child labour; I have worked towards the promotion of child and disability rights as well as championing freedom of information in Malawi; and I now help to change the lives of hundreds of the persons with disabilities in Southern Africa, through the Southern Africa Federation of the Disabled (SAFOD) where I work as Director of Programmes Manager in Gabrone, Botswana.

I am determined to share to share my personal aspirations, skills /expertise, and ideas with everyone here on the Global Legal Empowerment Network.
George Kayange is the network champion (main point of contact) for Southern Africa Federation of the Disabled (SAFOD).
