The disability inclusion Lab has a team of Disability Inclusion Advisors all over the world. These Advisors provide training and advice on Disability Inclusion to a range of stakeholders: government, Vocational Training Centers, Disabled People Organisations, Development NGOs, Companies or Humanitarian organisations, amongst others.
The advisors have carried out a lot of trainings in the past months, and we will highlight two of them here. In November, Light for the World organized a Disability Inclusion Academy in Uganda to train 50 young persons with disabilities to become mobilisers and disability inclusion facilitators. The training was a huge success: from the 50 candidates, 25 young persons with disabilities were selected to start as trainee Disability Inclusion Facilitator. With coaching and support by the Light for the World Uganda team, they are now promoting inclusion of youth with disabilities amongst companies and NGOs. They will give very practical training and advice to employers and NGO’s on how to include youth with disabilities in their programmes and workforce. Within a few months’ time they will be able to graduate into independent Disability Inclusion Facilitators.
In February we are going to organize a Disability Inclusion Academy in South Sudan. The difference with the Academy in Uganda is that the disability inclusion facilitators in South Sudan will work with humanitarian organisations and vocational training centers.
If you are interested in a tailormade training from one of our advisors, you can contact Paulien Bruijn for more information.
