Public Opinion Poll

Within the framework of the program it is intended to conduct a survey to measure public awareness and perceptions regarding PWDs’ employment in the LIFE Program communities. The survey objective is two-fold: to understand the level of public awareness and attitude with regard to employment of people with disabilities from the one hand and to measure the impact of public awareness-raising and other activities of the program on the general population from the other. The survey will be conducted in two-phases in the beginning of the program (May -August 2012) and at the end (July-September 2014). “Civic Development and Partnership” Foundation (CDPF) won the competition and was contracted by the LIFE program to conduct the POP.
