news from you

At Odobesti, disabled people receive training in order to have a qoualification. They become accredited carpenters and can work in diffrent workshops.

The professional qualification of people with disabilities, emerging from residential establishments and the support society must provide for the increase of their access to employment continues to be a challenge for all the factors involved.

One of the main problems identifies by the Pro Armonia Foundation during its actions for protection and support for people with disabilities in the county of Vrancea, is the need for professional qualification due to the fact that people with disabilities still want to have access to employment.

By initiating the Protected Occupational Therapy Workshop in Odobesti, this has succeeded during the 8 months it has been running to:

-provide the professional qualification of 8 beneficiaries, adults with mild disabilities from residential establishments, who qualified as carpenters.
-opening a small protected workshop for handmade wooden ornaments.
-providing specialist support to the eight beneficiaries in adapting themselves to the work environment and developing a pattern for rehabilitation and reintegration in employments for adults with disabilities, by promoting the legal framework for protected workshops

At present, after 3 moths since the end of the project, the 8 beneficiaries that had passed the exam and had received a qualification diploma in the occupation of carpenter were followed by other 2 beneficiaries, who wanted to achieve this qualification.

All beneficiaries attend daily the workshop and make wooden objects, boxes for wine exhibition, tables and chairs for kindergartens, other things.

Even though it s difficult and had obstacles we have tried to create an open environment and accessible for 8 disabled persons and we do our best that the professional opportunities to be used properly.
