EU presents results of its projects supporting social inclusion in Belarus

26.08.2017

The impact of EU-funded projects on the social inclusion of vulnerable categories of people in Belarus is the focus of the new issue of the Eurobulletin, published in August by the EU Delegation to the country.

Pavel Burykin, a paediatrician, describes a project aimed at protecting the rights of children with severe disabilities. The project supports families with severely ill children to exercise the rights guaranteed to them.

Sergey Drozdovsky, Director of the Office for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, explains what the “Agenda-50” project stands for, and how local communities help implement the principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Vladimir Potapenko, Head of the Belarusian Society for Persons with Disabilities, gives an account of the status of the Valožyn without Barriers project. Upon its implementation, Valožyn Raion should become a model for rendering social and recreation services, as well as developing tourism for people with disabilities in the country.

Svetlana Tsiunel, the coordinator of an initiative on medicinal herb cultivation in the Miadzel region, shares how it helps local pensionaries remain active, earn extra income and improve their sense of self-worth.

The coordinator of another EU-funded initiative, Yulia Zhukovskaya, explains how to arrange a schoolyard in order to make it attractive for teenagers to hang out there and acquire new knowledge, thus facilitating their socialisation.

The issue concludes with a block of news, which includes the opening of the Mythology Tourism Centre in the Berezinsky Reserve.
