SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
Living in a community does not imply being socially included. Social inclusion means that people have a sense of belonging and acceptance within their communities, and that they can actively participate in community life and that their roles are appreciated. However, nowadays, there are a large number of people with special needs who do not have this “sense of belonging” and do not have opportunities to access the activities they prefer; to learn or develop relationships with others and work.
The project stems from the common desire of the partners of this project to offer their youth workers knowledge and skills to work in the youth field for the social inclusion of people with disabilities in order to give them the opportunity to involve more in society and interact with each other despite their disabilities.
The idea of our project is closely linked to Article 8 section 2.b of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: promoting awareness-raising programmes on people with disabilities and the rights of persons with disabilities.
THE AIMS OF THE PROJECT
• Give participants the opportunity to acquire the right terminology in the field of disabilities in order to work correctly with the final target group;
• Know EU legislation on people with disabilities;
• Explain disabilities from different perspectives, depending on the type of disability and communication methods;
• Let participants share their countries’ experiences of disability, push factors and attraction;
• Shed light on the treatment of people with disabilities based on their difficulties in order to explain the reasons behind these treatments;
• Understand that people with disabilities are not only looking for help, but individuals who can provide and improve their environment;
• Discover different non-formal education approaches in order to support young people to effectively use non-formal education in local contexts for the integration of people with disabilities;
