This profile was prepared when Shudarson Subedi was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
The New Idea
Shudarson is creating a legal framework to guarantee disability rights while using the media to draw attention to the fact that, given the same opportunities as able people, the disabled can be productive and self-sufficient members of society. He advocates for changes through all avenues: through court cases fighting for disabled rights, through petitions to government offices, and through grassroots demonstrations via community organizations and self-help groups.
