On Sunday the 27th of August, The Hanns Seidel Foundation, in cooperation with the Ministry of Local Development held a huge exhibiton for handicrafts from the 27 governorate of Egypt.
Egypt has a large number of persons with disabilities in both urban and rural areas having very limited access to the basic social services and economic opportunities. The vast majority of persons with disabilities are excluded from societal participation and employment opportunities. In collaboration with Fajr Al Tanweer Assoc. for the Blind persons the Hanns Seidel Foundation is organizing a series of training workshops on the basic Life Skills for Persons with visual disabilities aiming at qualifying them to meet the labour market needs and find suitable jobs.
Under the umbrella of the project “Improving the Employability Prospect for Persons with Visual disability” the Hanns Seidel Foundation in Cooperation with Bibliotheca Alexandrina has held the soft skills program for Persons with Visual disabilities.
