Specialization in disability
ASED has been working in Albania since 1993, and has acquired a unique experience in development aid, mainly focused on the disability sector. Since the year 2000, ASED’s projects are part of the Marcela programme, the purpose of which is the rehabilitation of the country’s disability sector. This programme focuses on two complementary axes :
- Development of a training program for specialized educators, i.e. the first Pedagogic Specialized Unity (PSU) created in 2002 in the city of Vlorë in partnership with the HEP (Haute École de Pédagogie) Vaud, and the support of the DDC.
- Setting up Decentralized Units for Disability (DUD) and other infrastructures such as homes, orphanages and kindergartens for children and young disabled persons, in several Albanian cities.
