USAID’s PWDIE Project established its Advisory Board

On April 23, the USAID’s Persons with Disabilities Internship and Employment Project established its Advisory Board. The majority of the Board members are persons with disabilities for various disabled people’s organizations. Member of the Advisory Board from Handicap Tetovo is Mr. Ifraim Luta, who is the coordinator of the sports activities in the organization. The Board is expected to play an active role in identifying impediments to and proposing solutions for better inclusion of PWDs in the society; suggesting ways to improve the effectiveness of the project interventions, and promoting project’s accomplishments. The ultimate goal of the project is to sustain the Advisory Board beyond the project, so its continuing activities will lead to further improvements of the PWDs position in society.
