February 11, 2018 to February 16, 2018

The International Disability Alliance, in partnership with the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC)TCI Asia, DRAF and the Art 11 Project - Inclusive Humanitarian Action for Persons with Disabilities (IDA, CBM and HI), is conducting a Training of Trainers (ToT) Module A in the framework of the BRIDGE CRPD-SDG Training Initiative. The training will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 11 to 16 February 2018. The training is supported by Ford Foundation and the catalyst program from the UK Department for International Development (DFID). 

Overall, the training is a preparation of future trainers to upcoming BRIDGE CRPD-SDG modules, which are being organized to Uganda & Tanzania, in South Asia, Portuguese speaking countries, and as well as the one focused on Art 11 on situations of risk and humanitarian emergencies. It is also a privileged opportunity to ensure that in each region there are a critical number of disability activists in capacity to facilitate BRIDGE CRPD-SDG sessions. 

This ToT is bringing 10 leaders with disabilities from Africa, Latin America and Asia, including persons with albinism, psychosocial disabilities, autism, deaf people, including indigenous and youth representatives with disabilities. Sessions will cover topics such as CRPD compliance, equality and non-discrimination, equal recognition before the law and inclusive facilitation, among others. 

During the week, BRIDGE trainees will also meet DPOs from Haiti following the CRPD Committee's review.
