Community based rehabilitation workshop in Ethiopia

In the framework of the APPEAR project INEDIS, the project partners organised a workshop and invited citizens with various disabilities and their relatives from the Gedeo zone in Ethiopia. The training covered five important areas, namely: 1) Human Rights and Disabilities, 2) Social inclusion between PWD (persons with disabilities) and their parents, 3) Reflection on life experience by PWD in relation to their profession, 4) Vocational skill training and 5) Inclusive education for persons with disabilities.

The INEDIS project aims to strengthen capacity building at higher education institutions (HEI) to facilitate inclusive education for students with disabilities at university level and strengthen the ability of HEI to contribute to inclusive community and school development with a special focus on the intersection of gender and disability.

This workshop was part of the INEDIS community involvement, i.e. a possibility to learn about experiences from the communities, to network and to raise awareness about fundamental rights, social inclusion, education, etc.
