To achieve this, the project will aim to enhance the capacity of grassroots civil organizations to create and implement effective programs that support people with disabilities. The proposed approach entails strengthening the role of civil society organizations through collaboration and knowledge sharing, empowering them to become recognized actors in this field.

The project will also provide training for up to 20 civic activists operating in Kosovo Serb communities across Kosovo for job counseling services to persons with disabilities in local communities.
