Themed workshops were arranged, featuring artwork creation and sales presentations, alongside cooking sessions aimed at imparting life skills and fostering independence among individuals with disabilities.

Collaborative efforts like this, where individuals with disabilities are supported by students from “Goce Delchev” Elementary School from Bosilovo, North Macedonia not only provide practical assistance but also foster understanding and empathy among participants. Such events contribute significantly to building more inclusive communities and promoting acceptance and respect for people of all abilities.

This activity is supported by the project: “Promotion of Economic Diversification of Rural Areas in Southeast Europe (SEDRA II) in SEE- Value chain capacity building on agriculture and rural tourism to streamline rural employment opportunities” implemented in partnership by GIZ and SWG RRD.
