Humanité et Inclusion is an independent and impartial international solidarity organization that intervenes in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, it acts and testifies, to meet their basic needs, to improve their living conditions and to promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights. For more information on the organization: http://www.hi.org I. PRESENTATION OF THE HI PROGRAM IN ALGERIA: a) History The action of Humanité & Inclusion (the new name of Handicap International) in Algeria began in 1998 with collaborations with mental health and rehabilitation professionals working with public in difficulty (victims of terrorism, suffering from serious diseases, etc.). During the floods of Bab el-Oued (2001) and the Boumerdès earthquake (2003), HI supported rehabilitation as well as medical, psychological and social assistance for serious injuries, disabled people with disabilities and traumatized children. In 2003, the scope was extended to disability prevention in Assisted Children`s Homes (FEA). For twelve years (2004-2016), Observer since 2001 of the implementation of the Ottawa Convention, HI`s involvement in mine action in Algeria has been reinforced since 2007 following a study of needs in education and awareness-raising. mine risks. Gradually, HI has become a mediator and facilitator between public authorities and associations, particularly through capacity building and civil society advocacy, on new issues such as education, social inclusion and development. local vulnerable people. The two most recent projects (started in April 2018) focus on this last theme by seeking to promote the collaboration of the public authorities with civil society during the development of local development plans. In 2016, HI opened a base in the Saharawi camps, following the floods of autumn 2015, to help improve the quality of life of people with disabilities, notably by improving care and treatment. rehabilitation and occupational therapy. An office was opened in November 2018 in Tiaret for monitoring a project (NIDID) implemented in the highlands of northwestern Algeria. b) Projects in Algeria: The actions of the association have as objective the structural improvement of the living conditions, the insertion and the full social participation of the vulnerable people. Humanity & Inclusion is currently working with its institutional and operational partners 4 projects in 9 wilayas of the Algerian territory. Currently, HI projects in the country are working to: Rural Local Development : Support local associations / professional groups in their ability to manage innovative, sustainable and inclusive economic initiatives of rural populations. Promote consultation between local authorities, technical services and community organizations to identify local priorities for including vulnerable populations in local development. Support to urban refugees Health / Rehabilitation : Improve the detection and management of disability in Sahrawi refugee camps; Education: Improved access to education for disabled children living in Saharawi camps. II. CONTEXT, OBJECTIVES AND RESULTS EXPECTED FROM THE MISSION a) Context of the study The literacy rate and level of education of disabled children living in Sahrawi refugee camps is very low. The exploratory survey on needs, barriers and facilitators for access to services and social participation of children with disabilities in the Sahrawi camps carried out in 2016 by HI with the financial support of UNICEF shows that 35% of children with disabilities In a frequent survey of a specialized education center, of these, only 67% go there every day. On the other hand, only 7% of disabled children are in mainstream education. One of the main barriers to the schooling of children with disabilities is the interest perceived by their parents: 35% of the parents interviewed feel that their child does not need to attend a specialized education center and 19% do not know how to identify if their child needs it or not. In addition, 92% of parents do not think that their child could be educated in a regular school. Other obstacles have been identified by the parents: the child`s state of health, the "fear" of what could happen to their child and the perception of an insufficient pedagogical impact for the child. Parents talk about learning methods and non- materialas well as the negative attitudes of other students (ordinary environment). Finally, many parents do not take the step when they enroll their child in a specialized center by superstition (bad eye) or hope that the disability situation dissipates. For their part, professionals in the social and educational sectors have expressed training needs to better accommodate and care for children with disabilities and meet their specific needs. They also expressed a lack of knowledge of the work done by the teams of specialized centers and a lack of connection between the ordinary and specialized environment. In response to this observation and in connection with the recommendations detailed in the above-mentioned survey, HI has developed a project aimed at: Strengthen the capacity of education professionals in their specific skills to improve the quality of care for children Inform parents of children with disabilities about the abilities and potential of their child and the need for schooling; Raise awareness among education and social affairs actors and the community about disability and the inclusive approach; Develop an inclusive education strategy document to anchor this need in the long term. Develop a training module on disability and inclusive education approaches in collaboration with the Teacher Training Center (activity subject to these terms of reference) b) Objectives of the mission Building on the existing inclusive education training guides within HI and the training modules already developed in other HI projects, develop / adapt in connection with the teacher training center and the Ministry Saharawi Education a training module on disability and inclusive education by promoting a participatory approach and ownership by stakeholders. The training module will be officially presented to the Saharawi authorities and other relevant stakeholders for validation and integration into the current training curriculum. c) Expected results A training module on disability and inclusive education is developed in collaboration with stakeholders and presented for validation III.
