Our goal is to provide accessible education for students with disabilities in South Eastern Europe. Our goal is to help Higher Technical School in New Belgrade to become first 100% accessible school for students with special needs. It will be first institution that provides 100% accessible higher education in South Eastern Europe.
We are very young and small organization. We can't finish this project on our own and we don't want to do that. We want to make cooperation. Once again we what giants and small ngo, giants and small foundation, large and global companies, and small and local companies to think locally.
Imagine all diversities (language, religion, nation, and disability) untied in one focal point. Imagine people in amphitheatre. At the same lecture there are many nations; many religions and the most important there are people with special needs and totally different disabilities (motor, sensor…). They are all learning together. They all have equal chances for internships, equal changes on job intervews. Infrastructure is accessible to all of them. They all have same rights.
Now wake up.
These are thinks we can achieve only together. With all help we can get we will make first educational institution that is accessible in our Country. Higher education in Serbia is not accessible at all. If we manage to create 100% accessible faculty, we will make huge local impact. We well learn. That knowledge could be used on more and more local points. When that happened we can certainly say that this project had global impact.
Goal that we have sat for this campaign is to make many important contacts and to arrange many meetings with school representatives that could make a difference in this project realization.
If you think that you can help please contact us. There are many thinks that we need. Assistive Technology donation, Computers donation, ramps, vehicles for transport people with special needs, Braille printer ... Lists goes on and on.
