ABOUT THE PROJECT WITHOUT BORDERS: DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT OF INCLUSIVE EDUCATIONAL UNION
In 2006, Ukraine signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (ratified by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in December 2009). In March 2010, the document came into force and is currently serving as a national legislative act on the rights of persons with disabilities in the country. In 2017, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed amendments to the Law on Education concerning the access of children and young people with special educational needs to educational services, which continues the introduction of inclusive education in Ukraine.
The project WITHOUT BORDERS: DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT OF THE COMMUNITY INCLUSIVE EDUCATION aims to develop a co-ordinated training program, interconnection and exchange of information, modeling best practices and providing feedback on the implementation of inclusive practices in education between teachers, professionals, university lecturers, employees non-governmental organizations and parents of children and youth with disabilities.
