Disability Awareness Workshop for Parents and Pre School Teachers of Naifaru Noorani Pre School

Posted on: April 16, 2013

This field trip was organized as per a request from the local NGO Naifaru Juvenile. The purpose of the trip was to conduct awareness sessions for parents and Pre School Teachers. Two facilitators from Care Society went to Naifaru to conduct the sessions from 11th to 13th April 2013.

The trip was funded by NGO Naifaru Juvenile.

The workshop started on the night of 11th April 2013, with an introductory ice breaker which was then followed by awareness sessions on UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability and the Disability Act of Maldives.

On 12th April 2013 afternoon sessions were conducted on the terminologies used to refer to disability, the different kinds of disabilities and different ways that parents and teachers could possibly work with persons with disabilities. In the evening sessions, information was provided for the participants on the different services available in Maldives for PWDs. Also, a small evaluation was done in order to determine how much the participants gained from the sessions.

Teachers and parents recognized the need of having more awareness session, particularly for PWDs and their families. The teachers requested to conduct a special training program for them in order to equip themselves with necessary techniques to work with children with disabilities.

41 participants joined for this workshop .

Naifaru Juvenile is a very strong willed NGO wherein they do a lot for the local community to empower its youth, women, children and other groups. This is an ideal community where we can explore the possibility of implementing a Community Based Rehabilitation program.

The team from Care Society returned to Male’ on 13th April 2013.
