“People with disabilities are not insulated from the problems facing the country, particularly the high rate of poverty, youth, and graduate unemployment. Disabled youths are among the poorest and most marginalized of the world’s youth, and often face significant challenges, including negative attitudes, discrimination, and lack of accessibility in physical/virtual educational environments. However, findings from related research show that disabled people in rural areas are economically active, able to generate income, and have the possibility of a productive path out of poverty. By enhancing the professional knowledge and business skills of disabled persons with disabilities, they are supported to implement their own businesses and to be part of the labor market under equal conditions. The 24month ARABLE project involves 10 experienced partner organizations in 3 EU Member states (Greece(2) and Croatia), 2 third counties associated with the Programme (Liechtenstein and North Macedonia) as well as 5 third countries not associated with the Programme – Southern Mediterranean / Region 3 (Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, and, Jordan) to support inclusive and sustainable future societies, by empowering youths that face disabilities, to gain entrepreneurship skills, to engage in sustainable agricultural entrepreneurship through an encompassing curriculum that suits to their needs and interests. To reach the above goal, ARABLE suggests the implementation of youth workers' learning experiences, research activities on best practices among 10 countries, and transnational organizational meetings, resulting in the development of the ARABLE transitional DataBase & e-Guide on best practices, training techniques, rates & guidelines and the Open online Learning Environment for agricultural entrepreneurship for disabled young people. ARABLE “talks” about the arable lands that will be cultivated, the opportunities that are ready to be seized, and the ABILITIES that will shine.

Project Objectives:

The ARABLE project proposes international cooperation on multilateral partnerships between organizations active in the field of youth in order:

  • To encourage an open & respectful exchange of views between individuals & groups involved in project who come from different culture and promote the high quality of non-formal learning tools as a means of inclusive learning settings

  • To build up the capacities of European and South-Mediterranean youth organizations, to better support young people with disability, through non-formal education

  • To promote European values and fight discrimination worldwide, and foster awareness about equal participation, cohesion & respect to the others and to the environment as well.

  • To boost cooperation among youth workers across Europe and beyond towards quality youth work, that supports target groups through innovative and corresponding educational tools.

  • To reach the general youth audience that will be influenced by ARABLE, interested in agricultural entrepreneurship & European projects like Erasmus+ through the development of efficient dissemination & communication ARABLE plans.

Specific objectives of ARABLE

  • To conduct research on best practices, training techniques, youth beliefs & countries’ guidelines

  • regarding agricultural and rural entrepreneurship for young people with disabilities. (Research Report - DataBase)

  • To build the skills-sets & raise the state-of-art educational material for Agricultural Entrepreneurship suitable for young people with disabilities (e-Guide & Educational Platform)

  • To empower people with disabilities to become active members of society and generate income through the development of small businesses in the agricultural sector (Up to 2000 young people with disabilities in whole, to be reached, through the dissemination activities)

 

ARABLE is expected to target youth professionals (youth workers, mentors, etc) that work with young (disabled) people. Innovative tools development will illustrate useful learning & training methods for youth workers, who will support young disabled people from all over the world not only based on their vision on words but through realistic methods, having a practical manual that fits disabled youth and youth in general.

End beneficiaries of the projects results will be young disabled people that could be trained on knowledge and skills of entrepreneurship in agriculture. The project’s educational material could be utilized from young people with no disabilities too. However, the whole point of capacity building transnational network, will be focused on the agricultural youth entrepreneurship and will corresponds to the needs & interests of disabled young people.
