Government facilities will be reviewed for accessibility. Access improvements, including ramp construction, will be built by Iraqis.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims at improving understanding and promotion of inclusion of people with disabilities. The activity will raise the awareness among the participants and help to convey the message among community members.
