With thanks to support from UNICEF Belize, Realize was honoured to have the opportunity to launch its first Education 4 All! project in 2018. The project marked Realize’s first step in working with families, schools, communities and the Ministry of Education to move to equality of education for children with disabilities and ultimately giving them the opportunity to achieve their potential!
We feel privileged to have been welcomed by families, teachers and education professionals throughout Belize who shared their views to enable us to create the Education Report which led to delivering information, training and resources to families and teachers to further promote the inclusion and integration of children with disabilities. Thank you to all of the organisations and individuals who helped make this project possible.
In 2019, we plan to take Education 4 All! to the next step by creating a comprehensive disability toolkit and training for teachers to enable teachers to develop an understanding of the types of disabilities children may experience, strategies and learning techniques to enable children to learn and resources to enable teachers to establish inclusive classrooms.
