On 7 and 8 March 2018, AFA project team interviewed 18 candidates who with disabilities, village leaders, Women's Union’s officials and commune’s officials in the project area. It is located in Ninh Son Ward, Dong Khoi Commune and Long Thanh Bac Commune, Tay Ninh Province.
After 2 days of interviewing the AFA project team highly appreciated the spirit of cooperation and the desire to support people with disabilities (PWDs) of the candidates’ communicators.
DRD believes that if communicators are well-trained in information on legal issues that support PWDs, particularly those with accessibilities, health care and education rights, will come to PWDs and people with no disabilities more timely. The more people who know and understand the laws of PWDs, the more opportunities which will help them improve their chances of equality and social integration.
After interviewing and selecting, the project team supported to communicators through training on personal and group communication skills, policy advocacy for PWDs, especially about accessibilities rights. Moreover, the project team and communicators planned and began communication work for PWDs in the project area.
