The vocational and technical training program
The vocational and technical training program is one of the ASDC programs which aims at enabling persons with and without disabilities in the Gaza Strip through vocational and technical training which improves their chances at locating job opportunities.
The program offers short- and long-term training courses in a range of fields includin: product design, sewing, embroidery, carpentry, furniture production, furniture painting, upholstery, painting on wood, pottery production, pottery paining, arabesque design, jewellery making, photography, fabric and rug weaving.
Participants of the vocational and technical training courses also take part in job counselling workshops where they are informed about employment laws, the Palestinian disability law and fundamentals of human rights. Business owners and employers are also invited to the workshops in an attempt to bring together the opinions, fears and ideas of both parties in order to minimize pre-conceptions about persons with disabilities limitations in the workplace.
