Responding to concerns from parents and teachers regarding the future of their children after leaving the education system, SI(R) has initiated a vocational pilot project called A Sense for Life.
With financial support from Orange Foundation and Medicor Foundation, we developed 8 vocational centres, pilot-workshops where young people can learn a trade in a safe environment, with the support of teacher trained by SIR in deafblindness.
8 vocational centres (5 typographies, 1 greenhouse și 1 marzipan laboratory)
173 young people with deafblindness learn a marketable trade
63 vocational teachers trained in the field of deafblindness
2 partner schools oprovide state authorised courses in the field of digital typography.
