Inclusive Space of Karazin University: accessibility and development for all

Description of the project

Karazin University, as a renowned center of education, culture, and science, has long been implementing state programs to create appropriate conditions for the development of people with disabilities. Notably, in 2023, the Veterans Development Center was established, which organizes career orientation activities and individual professional development for veterans and their families.

In response to the increasing number of individuals requiring barrier-free access to higher education institutions in Ukraine, Karazin University is implementing the "Inclusive Space" project. This project aims to ensure barrier-free access to the university, providing quality educational services and developing professional skills. The main goal of the initiative is to create comfortable conditions for higher education seekers, war veterans, and those affected by the armed aggression of the russian federation among people with disabilities.

The project primarily includes equipping the university with ramps, handrails, Braille signs, and other means to facilitate access. This will help create a safe, effective, and barrier-free learning environment.

The total budget of the project is 400,000 UAH. Its implementation will involve over 3,000 young people and veterans with disabilities in the educational process and the activities of the Veterans Development Center.

Thus, the Inclusive Space at Karazin University will promote the realization of the policy of accessible education and the reintegration of veterans into the economic, social, and cultural life of the country, supporting the 4th Global Goal of the UN Sustainable Development Program. This is an important step on the path to Ukraine's post-war recovery.

In case of non-implementation of the project, the funds will be accumulated and spent on the needs of the university, according to their appeals. All funds are charitable contributions: non-refundable.
