The Right to Earn a Living- Increased economic inclusion of youth with disabilities through enhanced livelihoods opportunities

The project was realized in between 2013-2016 with the financial support of CISU Denmark and in partnership with the Danish International organization “Mission East”. By the end of the project, 4 regional Platforms for Civic Synergy and a strong civil society allow Youth with Disability to lead advocacy and awareness-raising activities on their rights to vocational education and employment.  120 youth with disabilities received vocational education and get qualifications relevant to the local labor market from newly established inclusive courses at 8 vocational training centers. 35 youth with disabilities in Tavush Marz have got access to diversified income generation activities, markets/ potential employers, and government benefits. In 2017 the project is recognized as innovative and is awarded the Zero Project Innovative Practice Award 2017.
