Posted on: January 24, 2011

On January 23rd 2011, an MOU with UNDP has been signed by Care Society in Collaboration with Maldivian Deaf Association in creating Awareness on United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability (UN-CRPD) and Disability Act (Law 8/2010).  The project will be focusing mainly on four islands Gn Fuvamulah, G Dh Thinadhoo, L Fonadhoo/Gan and Male’. From Care Society a three days workshop will be conducted on UNCRPD and Disability Act for the target groups: service providers in the areas of disabilities, families of people with disabilities, Government and non government organizations, other immediate stakeholders of persons with disabilities and school children. Whereas the workshops by Maldivian Deaf Association will be lasting for 10 days and they will be focusing solely on the deaf community in these islands. Also a calendar to advocate the UN-CRPD by Care Society and Sign Language DVD on Human Rights/Deaf Rights and UN-CRPD by MDA will be executed under the same project.
