1st July 2023 – 29th February 2024

With the help of this project, we aim to raise awareness and understanding of disability and reduce the high level of stigma toward disability found among the population in Kruja region through educative workshops with parents of disabled children, all the while collecting valuable data from parents and providing the Municipality with a more profound understanding of the issues and views of their constituents.  The current outlook on disability hinders progress and full enjoyment of rights for persons with disabilities, therefore, through this intervention, we will try to facilitate a gradual shift in the perceptions of disability. In addition, we are building a small playground in front of a Multifunctional center for children with disabilities and an adjoining kindergarten in Kruja to create a space for purposeful activities and socialization between children with and without disabilities.
