‘Designing ICT Applications for Youth Inclusive Employment’ Workshop to Hold

“Designing ICT Applications for Youth Inclusive Employment” Workshop will be held on October 13-15 in Bibliotheca Alexandria, Egypt in line with the activities of the joint project titled “jobs and skills for persons with disabilities with a focus on ICT solutions” which was launched, in September 2014, by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), ICT Trust Fund and the International Labor Organization (ILO).

The 18-month project targets youth with visual and physical impairments aged 18 to 35 years and its main purpose is to support private labor market inclusion for People with Disabilities (PwDs) in the ICT and tourism sectors in six governorates (Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Read Sea, Dakahliya, and Minia) through ICT solutions.

The workshop aims to raise awareness on inclusive employment as well as capacities of PwDs to create solutions for challenges of inclusive employment, engage people concerned with different backgrounds in co-creation of solutions for inclusive employment and develop practical ICT applications for identified challenges of inclusive employment.

The workshop will gather persons with visual and physical impairments, members of Disabled People’s Organizations (DPOs), public and private training providers, private companies in the ICT and tourism sectors, social entrepreneurs; students and experts in ICT and design, engineers, technologists, members of PwDs centers in public universities, members of the ministries concerned  and policy makers.
