Resume:

Through the existing partnership between the Danish Moravian Mission and Star Mountain Rehabilitation Cente, the overall objective of the project is to promote the inclusion of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (PwID) in 30 schools in the West Bank in Palestine in order that they may live a life of more dignity. The proposed project is a continuation and an expansion of a former piloting project, but whereas the former project focused narrowly on rights in the area of reproductive and sexual health and protection, the proposed project seeks to build on the gained experiences and promote the inclusion of PwID in schools in order that they may enjoy their right to education and the right to be protected from all forms of violence. This will be done through: 1. Raising the awareness of PwIDs and their families residing in Ramallah and Al-Bireh districts concerning their right to education and protection from violence and abuse. 2. Improving the institutional capacity of targeted schools and institutions to include and protect PwIDs. 3. Advocating for increased implementation of policies from the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) in the area of inclusion of protection.
