Advocacy for inclusion in higher education in Albania

This project was organized during the period March - September 2007 in Tirana and it consisted in several phases. Knowing the sad reality that people with disability face to get higher education, we designed this project in order to increase their skills and competences, making them more active in debating and advocating for their rights.

The specific objective of this project is to encourage the debate on disability issues in higher education and to develop new initiatives and ideas in this field by directly involving students with disability in finding solutions to the problems that they face in higher education. This way these students could develop a mini-advocacy campaign in order to raise awareness of the institutions responsible for their specific needs.
