66 - Dr Homiyar Mobedji on Inclusive Education and Employment

In this episode I chat to Dr Homiyar Mobedji, from Benetech Asia/Africa. We discuss the importance of inclusive education and its importance in employment of persons with disabilities in the developing world. We also talk about the need for accessible books and Homiyar’s role as head of Benetech Asia/Africa, and the role of the Bookshare library for persons with print disabilities as a tool to support inclusion.
