Our newest training session for inclusion for people with disabilities is under way!
By Camila Urbina Escobar | Communicator
We are so excited to announce our newest trainning program to foster inclusion for people with disabilities! With your help we are creating three different groups, one in a community library, one in a local telecentre and one in a social organization that works with disabled people.
Starting on May 5th, each of the three will be able to choose one of the different programs that we offer, according to the most relevant group they work with, to provide them with Information and Communication techology training. We are expecting between 20 to 30 people in each group, who will learn how to use computers to improve their opportunities and quality of life.
Our project will take advantage of infrastucture and aids already placed in librarys, telecentres and institution around the city to teach groups of people with dissability how to use computer, digital tools and the internet to better understand and transfom their reality.
The chosen library, telecentre and social organization will be able to choose:
Our training session for people with visual dissabilites, will teach the group how to use and take advantage of the JAWS software, that allows blind or visually impared people to use any computer and navigate the web.
For our training session designed for people with hearing disabilities we have set up workshops that allow them to integrate digital tool in family life or entrepeneurship proyects.
Our training project for people with movility disabilities focuses on training to create entrepeneurship iniciatives to improve their economic oportunities and good practices for using the the Internet, to strenghten their academic development.
Our training session designed for people with cognitive disabilities, is our most special and tailored program, and we do them in careful articulation with the group's regular teachers and therapists. The program is created to suit the special needs of each group, according to the individual goals they are striving to achive and their most urgent needs, which can range from the development of psychomotor skills, concentration, to reading and writing proceses.
These programs are proof that when it comes to inclusion, little resources can go a long way and spread through the community, changing lives and transforming the future of many. When you donate to our project you are not only donating to create inclusion, you are helping to shape lives and better the conditions of generation of people with disabilities in entire communities!
