Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 14/03/2019
Tonga Skills this morning launched a special one-week training for people living with disabilities known as the Disability Inclusive Training approaches.
The aim of the program is to include those living with disabilities in education and health services.
The trainer – Annie Dares, says this is an important program because it will help provide similar opportunities offered to those without disabilities to those living with disabilities including education, employment and health services.
“It provides an opportunity. I’ve been able to see people with disabilities .. school and training”
Dares hopes that by the end of the workshop, each of the agencies will be able to set up a disability inclusion strategy for their organization.
About 20 participants are taking part in the training program from various government and non-government organizations including the Ministry of Education, Social & Protection Division of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ma’a Fafine mo e Famili and many others.
The program will end next week.
