Colombia – Rehabilitation and training for children with disabilities

This programme provides rehabilitation and vocational training for children with disabilities between the ages of 12-16 years old.

Some 4.5 million disabled people live in Colombia, more than 658,000 in the capital city, Bogota. 10% are these people are children aged 12-16, and only 26% of them have the chance of going to school. This project aims to enhance the quality of life of children with special needs (physical, mental, sensorial and cognitive disabilities) through a global rehabilitation plan, so children know their rights and achieve their independence and autonomy.
