The DECIDE Erasmus+ Project will foster the right of individuals with special needs in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan to access education and enjoy the right of participation in everyday society.
The project will combat discrimination by instilling awareness and acceptance in society as in line with the Bologna Process and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
