We will have a monitoring system in place to see how many persons of disability after courses make it to the job market and the overall perception of a disable person in the day to day life.


    Most volunteers understand little about persons with disabilities, sustainability of the project, due to the current economic climate. We have made contacts with Organisations in France and UK working with disable persons to help train staff, who will in turn train other volunteers to keep the project alive.
