Embroidery, painting, and computer science: overcoming social exclusion for a better life

For three years, Handicap International Algeria and the Algerian Federation of Disabled Persons have implemented an EU-funded inclusive local development programme as ‘a solution to fight against the social exclusion of the disabled’. Eighteen associations have participated in this programme by developing actions and mechanisms to fight against the social marginalization of disabled persons.

This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre. (ENPI Info Centre)
