A #KitaJagaKita project for #OKUMalaysia, family & friends as we celebrate ‘Boleh-ness’ in Boleh-land
‘Boleh-ness’ is the state of celebrating abilities & possibilities by removing barriers
We first started out as disabled friends on Twitter that became a Twitter Group during the first Movement Control Order in 2020. Later in the same year, Boleh Space was born as a Disability Advocacy and Awareness movement on Twitter.
We started out by sharing about ableism and disability issues at twitter.com/bolehspace and using the hashtag #OKUMalaysia. Under the guidance of our official advisors; Assoc. Prof. Dr Naziaty Mohd. Yaacob (Universal Design and Accessible Built Environment, University Malaya), Dr. Ikmal Md. Tah (Disability Law, University Teknologi Mara), Dr Amar Singh (Healthcare) and many more unofficial advisors, we have grown so much in just one year, all without ever meeting each other in person. All our activities were fully coordinated and done online. One year later, we are now officially registered and working as a social enterprise.
What we do
We mainly share on ableism and disability issues. Some of our past sharings include
- The correct terms for in Bahasa Melayu and English Language for Malaysia.
- Why Malaysia need to review our Persons with Disabilities Act 2008
- Accessibility and Disability Inclusion
Almost all our webinars include BIM Interpreters. Check them out here.
Several of our members participated in panels and workshops. Check out a non-comprehensive list on this page.
