Empowering young Belarussians living with disabilities

30 May 2017

An UNDEF-funded project in Belarus organized an international forum in Vitebsk in May 2017 on empowering people with disabilities by creating opportunities for work and employment. The forum was hosted by the Belarussian charitable public association World Without Borders, which is implementing an UNDEF-funded project to empower young people with disabilities through training and opportunities for employment, so as to enable their de-institutionalization, improve their quality of life and encourage them to participate in society. Actions include opening a support centre for entrepreneurial activity and employment of young people with physical and mental disabilities; workshops; master classes; contests for business proposals, trade fairs, development of the database of business strategies, integrative forums for all participants of the project and outreach activities.
