With the co-funding of the European Union, our consortium of partners, in this Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnership Programme, is dedicated to enhancing career opportunities and creating inclusive work environments for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing (DHH).
We aim to promote deaf awareness and increase the participation of DHH individuals through the creation and dissemination of materials and activities at the local, regional, national, and European levels. Our ultimate goal is to shift employers' and employees' thinking toward people with disabilities, provide access to the labor market, and improve the work status for DHH individuals.
Our mission is to create a new social reality for DHH individuals, where they are empowered to achieve personal growth, career development, and equality in the workforce.
