“We All Have the Right to Work” Campaign on Disability Employment Issues

Campaings_Eng

November 06, the LIFE program announced the start of the “We All Have the Right to Work” campaign aimed at highlighting the right and equal opportunities for people with disabilities (PWDs) to work. The campaign is initiated by the USAID-funded Livelihood Improvement through Fostered Employment for People with Disabilities (LIFE) program.
The need for the campaign was emphasized by the public opinion poll recently conducted by the LIFE program. The study revealed lack of or limited public awareness on PWD issues, especially the challenges faced by PWDs during and after the hiring process and their needs in a work environment.
Although the LIFE program is implemented in 10 communities in Yerevan and in Ararat, Gegharkunik, Lori and Shirak marzes, during the campaign, a number of events will be organized in all marzes of Armenia. Public awareness raising activities, round table discussions, job fairs, exhibitions, marz coordination council meetings and press conferences will be organized with active involvement of major stakeholders, media and PWDs.
The events will be organized in close cooperation with marz and town authorities, employment centers, LIFE program partner organizations, PWDs, technical and vocational education and training institutions and employers.
