The Bethlehem Governorate celebrated this month the inauguration of a media unit for the integration of people with disabilities at the Beit Jala vocational training centre which was founded by the Palestinian Ministry of Labor.

The project has become the first of its kind in Palestine, since it adapted the centre to become accessible by persons with disabilities, through constructing an elevator, special bathrooms, and providing tools, equipment and training of trainers to provide this service for all students.

The first phases of the project concluded a research in the Bethlehem district on the employment of people with disability in the labor market. The research showed that there was a lack of People with Disability companies and institutions, and a lack of accessibility in the buildings, especially in the field of media.

The international cooperation project was executed by the Beit Jala Vocational Centre, the Bethlehem Governorate, and PNN, with the support and funding of the Belgian Association for Action and Development and the Wallonie- Bruxelles International (WBI).
