Regional JFDP Alumni Conference
Two experts from Mobility Challenge took part In the JFDP Conference on the topic ”Enhancing Accessibility of the Higher Education to the Disabled.” This conference was organized by the Macedonian American Alumni Association (MAAA), from the 22ND to the 24TH of November 2010 in Ohrid. As a result of this Conference a Draft for an Action Plan was created for future cooperation and to initiate projects for better inclusion of people with disabilities in Higher Education.
Living as disabled in an able-bodied world
The team of Mobility Challenge on the 3rd of December, the International day of persons with disabilities, organized this event through a Social Network. People who attended this event were from all different parts of the World, but with the same purpose, "Raising awareness about people who live their lives, challenged with some form of disability." Participants dedicated a part of their time, by choosing to do some of their daily routine challenged with some limitation that they chose for themselves.
This project showed the power of Social Networking and the possibility of making Worldwide Initiatives.
