A set of workshops shall be organized, whereby the concept of Service Learning (SL) shall be conveyed to tackle problems relating to:
- raising awareness of and correct stereotypes about Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), and
- enabling, promoting and guaranteeing equal rights of PwDs in line with the UN Convention on the rights of PwDs (Art.24&9).
Educators and students are primarily target groups, however, the SL case-studies will impact the wider community. The project team is made up of 23 alumni, mostly a mix of Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) and Fulbright alumni from Macedonia and Croatia, and is supported by the Macedonian American Alumni Association (MAAA).
