SHARE-SEE is the acronym standing for
Self- Help & Advocacy for Rights & Equal opportunities in South East Europe.
What does it mean?
It means that people with disabilities should have the same opportunities as any other citizen to participate fully in social, political, economical and cultural activities of the community.
It means that the society should facilitate this participation with adequate service provision and supportive legislation . .
It means also that people with disability have to develop their abilities and capacities to advocate for their rights and to take the opportunities that could exist .
The SHARE-SEE project started in January 2003 with the aim to strengthen civil society for the promotion of Rights, full participation and equal opportunities for people with disabilities in South-East Europe.
The project covers directly the following countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Union of Serbia and Montenegro (Serbia, Montenegro and the Autonomous Province of Kosovo under the Administration of UNMIK), FYR of Macedonia
SHARE-SEE is funded by the UK Department for International Development, the Balkan Trust Fund, the U.S. State Department through ITF and by Handicap International
The SHARE-SEE project wants to contribute to the development of the capacity of Disabled People Organisations (DPOs) and thereby to promote equal opportunities and full participation of People with Disabilities (PWDs) in South East Europe.
The project supports Disabled People Organisations as a priority, convinced that self-representation is a key point in the process of advocacy for rights and equal opportunities .
The ambition is to foster a regional disability movement and to create conditions for a long-term social change. SHARE-SEE expects to bring about change in the attitude of community, society and public authorities in order to create an environment where people with disabilities have equal opportunities.
The project promotes cross disability movement and considers disability as a human rights issue. The project is particularly concerned by the situation of women with disabilities and will pay a special attention to this issue
