On the occasion of marking the International Day of persons with disabilities (3 December) and International volunteer day (5 December) we run the action as volunteering for officials in the organisations for persons with disabilities, entitled “OPEN DOOR DAYS IN ORGANIZATIONS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES”,
The idea is that volunteers (relevant representatives of the different levels of government, and representatives of international community present in Bosnia and Herzegovina) spend this week a few hours in implementing designed task within the organizations of persons with disabilities.
We want to get volunteering officials closer to the challenges and problems of organizations of persons with disabilities decision-makers in our society and affect their active involvement in the creation of equal conditions and opportunities for equal inclusion of persons with disabilities in all social trends.
With this action, we want to show the public day-to-day problems and challenges that members of this population meet, but also to promote their abilities and possibilities.
We want organizations of persons with disabilities to take advantage of the opportunity and hospitality representatives of government institutions, to decree on the problems and challenges that are dealing, and to develop partner relations and deepen co-operation with actors in the decision making within our society.
Action “OPEN DOOR DAYS” (2-6 December) is held in a time when many organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina mark the international day of persons with disabilities when they can invite officials to join the planned events for marking this very important date or volunteer on a particular assignment within the organization of persons with disabilities during one of the days in this week.
