PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

Yes.

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

We think the biggest difficulty is the lack of information, followed by inappropriate conditions of accessibility in the city which involves all issues (streets, buildings, bridges, public transportation, etc.) and last but not least, the need for a better qualification of disabled people.

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

Our work is focused on the inclusion of less favored people, especially disabled people, in society, in a way to improve effectively the participation on it.

ADVICE: What advice would you like to give to the Secretary-General and the General Assembly to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the second half of the Decade?

We would like to suggest special attention to provide a better life`s quality to disabled people. We think the means to do it in health would be achieved by giving a differentiated and priority treatment to them. More participation of society and a better preparation of teachers and schools would improve conditions in regular education. At work, better conditions of employment, suitable transports, partnerships between non profit organization and private companies to make projects of qualification in nacional level for them. Finally, to spread all possible information in favor of the inclusion of not only these people but also other less favored ones (HIV carriers, mentally disordered, etc.) in our society.

PARTNERSHIPS: What partnerships and networks does your organization participate in, thus strengthening the global movement for a culture of peace?


PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence in the second half of the Decade (2005-2010)?

The trainning of instructors and teachers of public and private education to become able to teach appropriately disabled people, the selection and qualification of these people, the preparation of the companies to become able to receive them in all levels from accessibility till information and work to promote the conscious of the abilities they have. Give necessary support to the public department improving cities and transportation in accessibility and preparing public attendents in a friendly way to receive and getting job with special people. Improve trainning and development  for both - disabled people to be included as a regular condition in job`s market and non disabled people to get better information about differents condition of lives in a way to receive, in any case, special people to work together.
