The Awards are first step towards highlighting the accessibility needs of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). That account for 15% of the Pakistan’s population according to independent sources.
With the help of potential ICTs it is believed that PWDs can become more self-sufficient, independent and active in the society. In line with this vision, Pakistan Mobile App Awards 2016 has provided the best platform for the developers to interact and assess the needs of PWDs at various awareness workshops.
