Målgrupper :

The project tries to work with a target group of approx. 250 persons with ID in the five pilot localities, all have been evacuated. Together with their families who amounts approx. 225 relatives of which the key actors among the beneficiaries will be the mothers who any way shall be a driving force in the change process. But it is important to involve the families as much as possible to create a traditional momentum I a Ukrainian context. Additionally to these two groups, is also the participation of (1) the local organisations of parents/mothers to children with disabilities, and (2) the staff occupied with the care and (if) existing services for the persons with ID. In the 5 localities these two groups will double the participating people. In total, you may say the primary and secondary target groups in the 5 pilot localities amounts to approximately 500 people who will be motivated and supported to enter into dialogue with the decision making bodies as well as the civil society at a whole.

Resume:

Et samfund skal altid bedømmes ud fra hvordan det behandler sine svageste borgere som f.eks. mennesker med handicap. I Ukraine står det meget slemt til efter europæiske standarder, ikke kun fordi landet er i krig med Rusland og socialt og økonomisk står i ”frit” fald. Den fagprofessionelle defektologi og kultur og traditioner gør at mennesker med handicap virkelig er udsatte. Med dette projekt vil partnerne derfor tage et vigtigt skridt til at styrke fortalervirksomheden for og med mennesker med intellektuelle handicap (PIDs), som er blandt de allermest udsatte. Vi vil gøre dette ved at opbygge 5 løsningsmodeller i regioner med evakuerede familier med IDs der tjene som konkrete eksempler på, hvad og hvordan man kan forbedre forholdene for PIDs ikke mindst ift. job og jobtræning, dagtilbud. Og udviklingen af disse tilbud vil projektet arbejde med at øge organisationernes kapacitet til at netværke, gå i dialog med myndighederne og synliggøre mennesker med ID. Projektet vil konkret involvere 2.500 mennesker direkte med udgangspunkt i 116 lokale foreninger for PIDs fordelt i alle Ukraines regioner (også de 2 ”løsrevne)
