The “In Touch” project aims to revolutionize non-formal education and high-quality learning for young people with various physical or mental abilities, improving their participation opportunities. Spanning six countries, including three from the European Union (Italy, Malta, and Cyprus) and three from the Western Balkans (Albania, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina), the initiative has set forth several key objectives. These include creating a manual of activities designed for young people with disabilities, developing an accessible online application to highlight services available for free to people with disabilities, providing organizations with tools and materials for the socio-professional development of young workers and trainers dealing with disabled individuals, and fostering social inclusion through accessible activities that empower young people with disabilities and promote their integration.

During a series of meetings and a conference held over four days from January 15th to 18th, 2024, partners gathered to discuss the project’s progress, challenges, and achievements. The conference facilitated a platform for sharing experiences and strategies, engaging in discussions about the future direction of the project, and exploring ways to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. Through presentations, panels, and collaborative sessions, participants shared insights into the project’s impact, personal stories of individuals with disabilities, and discussed the broader implications for social inclusion and empowerment. The event concluded with partners reflecting on the outcomes and planning future actions, emphasizing the project’s role in creating more inclusive communities for people with different abilities.
