Objectives and beneficiaries

Objectives

  • Jobs and Training. Occupational integration for persons with disabilities is the main priority of Fundación ONCE. From the surety that the best way to ensure normalization of disabled persons is through their occupational insertion, Fundación ONCE invests 70% of its budget in an occupational insertion and training plan for employment.
  • Accessibility. Global accessibility is, after occupational insertion and training for employment, the second priority in the activities of Fundación ONCE. The barrier suppression and accessibility promotion programs carried out with the support of Fundación ONCE are aimed, basically, at four areas:
    • Eliminating architectural barriers.
    • Promote communication of deaf persons, in their family, work, etc. environments.
    • Eliminating psychosocial barriers.
    • Accessibility to information society.
