The project’s aim was to organize awareness raising days in 20 public sector institutions in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county involving at least 100 civil servants in order to make them familiar with the special problems of visually impaired people and to provide more effective and appropriate help, to achieve smooth administration process to both parties’ satisfaction. 14 visually impaired persons and special needs teacher students take part in the project, too. An information booklet in 500 copies was distributed among the civil servants working with visually impaired people to help their work. Expected results are that the involved officers knowledge is broadened and the advocacy activities of the association are strengthened. Target groups are visually impaired people, the civil servants working with them in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, and indirectly families and people with other disabilities. The project was implemented in partnership with the Perspective Foundation for the Education of the Visually Impaired (PFEVI).
