SOCIAL INCLUSION PROJECT IN CUBA EDUCATION

A COMMITMENT TO DISABLED CHILDREN

Everyone in Cuba is entitled to an education, with actions that guarantee and promote full social equality, fomenting the inclusion of disabled children through the education system.  

In line with this policy, the Iberostar Foundation is seeking to establish a sustainable alliance aimed at helping the most vulnerable groups of children – disabled boys and girls -, contributing to the development of their skills in order to strengthen the educational system through this new project set up in partnership with UNICEF.  

The project, entitled ‘Social inclusion for disabled children in Cuba’, features a series of objectives such as improving inclusive education standards with actions that even include participating in the training of teaching staff and key agents, promoting higher education standards in vocational training schools and boosting social inclusion through sport.  

This new project, which will receive 300,000 euros from the Iberostar Foundation, will benefit teachers, specialists and key agents, 900 students enrolled in vocational training centres and more than 40,000 children. The various initiatives included in this programme will take place in 10 provinces around the country: Matanzas, Villa Clara, Guantánamo, Ciego de Ávila, Las Tunas, Sancti Spiritus, Mayabeque, Cienfuegos, Camagüey, La Habana, Holguín and the special municipality Isla de la Juventud.
