During the last visit of two board members in November 2019, Centrum International created together with their partners in Bahirdar a new project for special need education for elderly students together with their parents.
The new project will also support to create a union of parents who have children with a learning disability. This group of parents need support to create a ‘voice’ in the society in Bahirdar. It will strengthen the position and the integration of our students.
The project was scheduled to start in 2020. Unfortunately, due to COVID and domestic problems in Ethiopia, there has been a delay. At the beginning of this year, the partners of the project met on 25 January (See: Activities) and a restart was made. On 10 June 2021, a three-day conference was finally started in cooperation with Cheshire Foundation BDR and under the direction of Dr. Rediet Mesfin Tadese and Drs. Hana Shiferaw from the University of Bahir Dar. (PEDA)
