The program One World for All is designed to create opportunities of sharing between students at school and people with disabitities. From there, students will have a better understanding of the difficulties and the challenges faced by students with disabilities when studying at university, college, secondary school and more generally by people with disabilities at work and in their daily activities. This is part of the project “Access to Integration” implemented by DRD in Tay Ninh and Binh Dinh provinces thanks to the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Through several activities the participants could experience the difficulties of different forms of disabilities: moving through obstacles with a wheelchair, being blindfolding or using body language to describe objects. Through the stories and experiences shared by the guests in the program, One World for All will contribute to the motivation of living and learning of the students with disabilities and all the other students learning in the schools where the program will stop.
