Every year, Info-Handicap organises actions at the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) which is held on December 3rd. For the IDPD 2016, Info-Handicap decided to focus on the inclusion into work and the preservation of the workplace of persons with disabilities.
In order to promote the collaborative networking such as the consolidation of varied experiences and knowledge, we cooperate with varied actors working in this particular field. Many departments and associations are active in the fields of work and employment of persons with disabilities and a good coordination is therefore essential. In addition, a whole series of measures and tools intended to favour the professional integration of the employees do exist.
Our project aims at taking influence on the functioning of society so as to work towards a better inclusion of persons with disabilities. The day of December 3rd allows putting forward the situation of persons with disabilities while fostering the elimination of barriers in order to guarantee their inclusion.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities puts forward the freedom for all to fully participate in societal life. To reach this goal, it is necessary to be able to earn one’s own money and having a job is an essential component in that process.
