The conference “Human rights of people with disabilities and manners for achieving equal opportunities” was held on February 14, 2017 in Hotel Porta in Skopje.
With the conference was officially announced the start of the implementation of the project “Pilot Action for Access to the Rights of the Work of Persons with Disabilities“, which is implemented by the partner organizations Polio Plus – Disability Movement, Macedonia and the LINC Association, Mostar Bosnia and Herzegovina.
People with disabilities have the right to work and employment, although they are often excluded from the labor market. The reason for exclusion is most often related to inaccessibility of the workplace, prejudice, lack of opportunities for adjusting the existing experiences and knowledge on the labor market, thus making the disabled people socially excluded.
The conference is organized within the framework of the project “Pilot Action for Access to the Rights of the Work of Persons with Disabilities” implemented by the partner organizations Polio Plus – Disability Movement, Macedonia and LINК Association, Mostar Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The project is financed by the Delegation of the European Union in the Republic of Macedonia and the CFCD / Ministry of Finance through the IPA program for social inclusion at the local level, the European Union Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance IPA Operational Program for Human Resources Development 2007-2013.
