N_I.01 Work in a Center for mentally disabled or support them in the work of fundraising

Location: Juigalpa, Nicaragua
Keywords: Social work, Education, Special Education, Fundraising, Development

Description of the project:

 The organization was founded by mothers whose sons or daughters are mentally disabled. Together they support mentally disabled people and their families, while raising awareness for the topic in Nicaraguan society as discrimination and exclusion of disabled people are still hugeissues in Nicaragua. This leads to a lack of infrastructure for those affected. The project creates such an infrastructure: It is home and center for mentally disabled. Here they live and are taken care of and are able to visit workshops during the day where they can learn and work together.
  • Help to plan and conduct workshops at the center
  • Help the local volunteers and employees with their daily routine (care and support of the residents)
  • Develop presentations, workshops and other projects to raise awareness for specific disabilities
  • Accompany and assist the residents in their daily routine and live together with four mentally disabled at their residence
  • Help in the work of fundraising and find financial resources
