Training for the blind and partially sighted persons

June 2012- In cooperation with the association of the blind and partially sighted persons (SHVPDK) was completed the training of 32 blind and partially sighted persons.The blind and partially sighted persons association (SHVPDK) is a nongovernmental and non-profit organisation that aims advocating the issues for the blind and partially sighted persons. Integration of persons with disabilities especially blind persons in public life and their training for independent life is one of the biggest challenges and main goals of of SHVPDK.

A great number of blind citizens for various reasons did not manage to attend the school for blind or any other training that would prepare them vocationally and get them integrated in the employment market. Most of the blind persons have attended vocational trainings for massagers and telephone operators, but the demand for these vocations is very low or completely lacking.

Also due to the lack of assisting informative technology mainly because of the lack of tools such as acoustic programmes, displayers in Braille alphabet, access to information has been very limited for the blind persons, which is a major obstacle in their independence in life. Of course due to their vision impairment the blind are not capable of performing any type of work.The training of 32 blind persons in the field of informative technology with the aim of preparing them for the employment market in 4 Kosovo regions – Gracanica, Peja, Malisheva and Istog commenced on 02 April and will end on 29 June 2012.

With the vocational training of the blind in using assisting informative technology (with Braille displayer and acoustic) a greater access to information will be possible thus the chances for increasing the capacities of the blind and their employment.
