Aims & objectives

The main objective of the consortium is to develop an innovative social entrepreneurship training programme to be applied in the youth sector, addressing the needs of young persons with visual impairment, for improved social inclusion and employment opportunities. The program will incorporate a unique delivery approach, i.e. young people with visual impairment will receive a training focused on leadership, entrepreneurial and intercultural skills, transforming them into autonomous members of society and able multipliers of the approach - trainers and motivators of other young people with visual impairment.

Based on our experiences and lessons learnt we now believe that the v.i.p., are the experts on their conditions, which means that they should be the ones talking, explaining, empowering others. Hence the main approach we intend to follow - "empower to empower".
