The project improved the employability of People with Down Syndrome in Romania, by facilitating the collaboration among them, their families and employers. 125 People with Down Syndrome aged 15 to 48, from 15 counties, were involved. Due to pandemic conditions, we’ve worked with them remotely, in online workshops and telephone conversations. Also, we were supported by 17 local NGOs. Out of these people, 118 learnt how to search for and adjust to a job. 59 posted their written or video CVs on the project’s site. 52 attended visits and internship stages to different companies, where they practiced work responsibilities. 6 were hired as shop assistants, office clerk at the Ministry of Labour and Athlete Leadership Coordinator at SOR. To achieve these results, we’ve worked with 215 family members, authorities and NGO professionals and employers’ representatives, that were prepared to support People with Down Syndrome to access the labour market.
In our vision: Inclusion Works. Inclusion means partnership and valuing each others abilities.
