SPREAD THE IMPORTANCE OF INCLUSION THROUGH ARTS AND CRAFTS, EVENTS, OR MEDIA
Inclusion Awareness Projects share the importance of inclusion with schools and communities, and inspire others to get involved and create change.
Anyone - students, teachers, parents, and community members may lead an Inclusion Awareness Project.
Project activities or events take place in home, school, and community sites - such as workplaces, churches, recreation centers, or parks.
Projects may take place anytime over the course of a year, beginning with online Project Registration and ending with a Project Report.
Persons with disabilities face discrimination and barriers that restrict them from participating in society on an equal basis with others. People with disabilities are often excluded or segregated in separate settings away from people without disabilities - leading to a lack of friends, education, jobs, recreation, and housing. To solve this problem, we need to change the cultural mindset around disability, and build inclusive opportunities within our schools and communities that bring people together to reach their greatest potentials.
