Awareness Raising Activities by Access Israel
Making Inclusion Reality by Promoting Social Accessibility Inclusion through awareness activities all over the country.
Access Israel believes that the most effective way to create a social change is to educate people on the importance of accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. The goal is to enable the audience to feel, learn and experience the importance of accessibility and inclusion on a personal level. In our experience, experiencing the daily struggles that people with disabilities face daily, best demonstrates the importance of accessibility and inclusion. Moreover, meeting people with disabilities and learning about their stories and struggles, helps break the barrier between abled and disabled people and creates a more inclusive society.
