Training for CSOs and initiative groups of the EU funded project held in Nur-Sultan
NUR-SULTAN – During 2-4 May 2019, Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA), in partnership with Tandau and Erekshe Tandau Shelek Foundation, conducted three-day training in the framework of the “Inclusive Kazakhstan” project with the support of the Delegation of the European Union to Kazakhstan.
The training was aimed at improving the capacities of CSO and initiative groups, at acquiring the necessary tools and practical methods for the collection of data in order to monitor facilities in their cities, as well as an advocacy campaign to improve the quality and accessibility of facilities.
The training was attended by more than 20 members of CSOs and initiative groups from 14 regional centers of Kazakhstan and 3 republican cities. Experts in the field of monitoring and advocacy, working with volunteers and social networks acted as trainers. Also during the training, sessions were held focused on human rights topics and presented successful advocacy cases.
Within three days, the training participants mastered how to monitor the quality of facilities and advocacy campaigns. This will in turn increase the professional level of local CSOs in improving the accessibility of facilities throughout the country.
For three days, the participants were engaged in comprehensive knowledge aimed at quality monitoring of facilities and an advocacy campaign: general approaches to creating an accessible environment for people with disabilities and other people with limited mobility, architecturally accessible of social infrastructure, and protection of rights to an accessible environment. During the training, the participants analyzed the methodology and specifics of monitoring to determine the degree of accessibility of facilities and after completing the practical task, applied their knowledge in practice.
For three days we not only defined the specific goal of our future activities, but also band together as a team, because now we are one network, doing a common cause and solving our common problem - the right to freedom of movement. Thanks to the coaches we understood how to work together, decide, seek, discuss, share experiences, and help each other. Now I and each of the team have confidence in the work, which I am sure will be useful, said Ilyas Fatkulin, regional head of the NGO “Community of Persons with Disabilities “Ken Peyl”, Almaty.
Thank the donor of the project and the organizers for the opportunity to become part of such a meaningful project, to gain practical skills and useful knowledge, to meet new friends, said Vladimir Alexanin, regional head of the project in Kostanay city.
