Demographic projections for Lithuania and Latvia show that number of children with different types of disabilities are growing, therefore efficient social measures have to be taken to improve social inclusion. Problems of border regions of Latgale and Utena that were identified are lack of effective, diverse and innovative social inclusion measures for disabled children as well as lack of favourable modern outdoor educational infrastructure, that allows organization of educational process outside of the buildings productively and that can be used as efficient measure to solve social problems. The objective of the project is to improve accessibility and efficiency of educational environment for disabled children by setting up outdoor classes for effective implementation of new and improved social inclusion measures in border regions of Latgale and Utena regions.
Partners will jointly create and implement 6 educational training programs such as “Dealing with wool”, “Ceramics and Clay Therapy”, “Cinema/animation studio”, “Orchestra”, “Young researchers of nature” and “Fitness and mind therapy”. Also three professional orientation programs for children with special needs will be adopted and implemented. Children will present new skills in Visaginas, Dagda and Molėtai town festivals. Four summer camps in Latvia and Lithuania and 6 educational field trips will be organized. New social measure – Family clubs will bring region’s families with disabled children together, will help parents feel more involved in life of children, solve personal problems and find common ground with other families. Latvian and Lithuanian teachers will improve knowledge and gain new valuable experience that will be used while organizing educational activities in new social infrastructure – outdoor classes.
Successful implementation of the project will dramatically improve social infrastructure in Dagda, Molėtai and Visaginas and will create favourable conditions for disabled children to learn, to be active, to be included, to live fulfilled and visible life.
