Project ID 261RAF3000

This project aims at developing a collective understanding of the stigma and discrimination patterns in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions and among the employers, thereby laying grounds for action to fight such a widespread phenomenon. This will be accomplished by the development and testing of three tools in the four participating countries, with exchanges of experiences and lessons learnt. A particular attention will be paid to shedding light on how the intersectional discrimination between disability, gender, and poverty influences the generation and perpetuation of stigma and discrimination.
