The specific objective of the initiative is to strengthen the basic services for children with disabilities in the Iringa District through a participatory approach of all the actors of the educating community (school, day centers and families) to get to contribute to the inclusion social responsibility for minors with disabilities. In the area of intervention the condition of minors with disabilities and their families is still very serious: abandonment to themselves, early school leaving after the first years, stigmatization, poverty. Minors often do not access treatment, rehabilitation or education services. The initiative aims to intervene on the causes of exclusion with a bottom-up and participatory approach that involves all target groups. The project aims to reach 1,440 beneficiaries in Tanzania (60% women) among minors, young people, families, teachers and assistants and develops on three main axes: 1) Training of local human resources in schools and day centers in Iringa. The courses will include training modules on different disabilities, daily care, nutrition and health, rehabilitation and autonomy in everyday life; on inclusive education, on the use of Alternative Augmentative Communication (CAA) and the creation and selection of "poor" and technological aids. The training will insist on the standards contained in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The training materials will be summarized in a manual of good practice available online and through the creation of 5 documentation spaces spread throughout the territory. There is also a study visit to Italy for a total of 8 participants and the launch of pilot projects for inclusion in 10 schools in the rural area of Iringa. The good practices developed by the project will be included in a manual to be disseminated throughout the territory. 2) School facilities to grow their quality standards and make them accessible as meeting places for disabled and non-disabled students. In order to encourage community participation, it is planned to hold meetings in 10 schools with active parent committees, village representatives, students with disabilities, school staff, managers and administrative staff to define feasible needs and solutions to allow access to the environment. of schools for students with disabilities (such as creating ramps, tactile routes or using symbols). Moreover, during the mapping, with the parents' committees, the urgency has been identified to guarantee a more dignified housing for disabled students who currently reside in some classrooms of the Kipera school and to build adequate and accessible toilets for all the students in 10 schools. 3) The community, the associations of people with disabilities and local institutions to promote an inclusive culture and break down cultural barriers. It intends to promote the active participation of parents through the implementation of an emancipatory research focused on the analysis of the dynamics of discrimination and on the barriers to the participation of people with disabilities, meetings and public events to sensitize students, public officials, parents and local community . read more close
