An inclusive camp was held at Lopota
From September 3 to 10, an inclusive camp was held in Lopota. Over the course of 7 days, participants engaged in activities designed to develop personal growth, resilience, self-regulation, and adaptive skills. Participants learned to recognise the barriers that they and other disabled people face in their daily lives and developed strategies to overcome them together.
During the week, they had the opportunity to share their experiences and make new friends. On the seventh day, the camp was visited by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Issues of Persons with Disabilities, Gerard Quinn, and heard the views and opinions of the participants on the barriers and shortcomings related to the issues of disabilities in Georgia.
The camp was conducted within the framework of the EU-funded project Civil Society’s Coordinated Advocacy for Implementing Disability Rights Commitments in Georgia", which is implemented by the organisations "Coalition for Independent Living" and "Youth Organisation Changes for Equal Rights".
