Life and Love in Islands

Often disabled young people do not feel included in society.

The activities planned as part of this project seek to bring together a diverse group of young people to help integrate disabled youth into society in a festive environment.

- To help the disabled youth feel part of our society

- To give the disabled youth the opportunity to engage with other young people

- To give young people the chance to participate in different types of games and other activities

- To give young people the chance to develop their hidden talents

- To give young people the opportunity to celebrate Christmas together in a diverse group

- Together with the Ministry of Youth and Sports and other youth organizations, plan and hold a day of recreational games and activities, coinciding with Christmas celebrations, for a minimum of 100 youth, especially including disabled youth

- Provide transport, decorations, refreshments, prizes and gifts for the event.

- Evaluate the impact of the activity by asking a minimum of 50 participants to complete an evaluation form at the end of the day; and report on the results of the evaluation.

- Provide UNESCO with photographs and at least 60 minutes video footage of the activity.

- Publicise the activity through local radio, television and newspapers.

- Investigate and report on ways of making the activity an annual event, possibly with local support.
