Job without barrier - a chance for people with visual impairment

Centre for Monitoring and Research (CeMI) in cooperation with the Union of the Blind of Montenegro realized the project called “Job Without Barriers – A Chance for People With Visual Impairment”, with the goal to contribute to the social inclusion and respect of rights of persons with disabilities in Montenegro.

The goal of this project was to increase the employment of persons with disabilities, with a special accent on the persons with visual impairment, through the promotion of social entrepreneurship, working abilities and the significance of employing persons with disabilities. Within the project, one-month training was planned for ten interested persons with disabilities, with a special accent on the persons with visual impairment, i.e. two after the completion of the project.

Target groups that this project was focused on are primarily persons with disabilities with the goal of strengthening their capacities to conduct CATI research, as employers, NGO, media, state administration, local self-government, as well as other actors can contribute to the increase of knowledge and raising awareness of citizens about the significance of social inclusion and the benefits of hiring persons with disabilities.

Within this project, a public campaign was conducted about the necessity of social inclusion of persons with disabilities through social networks and media, by producing a short promotional film about their working abilities.

Through the promotion of this project and presentation of its results to the wide professional public, CeMI indirectly influenced other employees, as to increase the number of employees who are persons with disabilities and contribute to the realization of their basic rights.

The project was realized with the financial support of the Employment Agency of Montenegro.
