2019 was a very intense and lively year for the Bridge CRPD-SDGs Training Initiative with a significant investment in underrepresented groups and women with disabilities, regional and multi-countries cycles, strengthening of the Bridge material into other languages (including French, Portuguese, Arabic and Swahili) and the first Pilot Module 3 on Article 11 of the CRPD.

From January to December 2019, we developed: 

  • 3 regional cycles

- Middle East and North Africa (in Arabic and English),

- French-speaking West African (in French and Portuguese), and

- Asian multi-countries cycle ( in English, Nepali, Tamil and Laos). 

  • 1 national cycle in Tanzania (in Swahili and English);
  • 1 Training of Trainers (in French and Portuguese);
  • 1 pilot Module 3 on the Art 11 (in English, Spanish, Arabic, & Bahasa).

During these 6 cycles, 374 people were reached from 51 countries. 49% of those were women with disabilities and 42% were from underrepresented groups, and 86% of the facilitation teams being persons with disabilities themselves (38 out of 44 facilitators).

For further information on the past Bridge cycles, the progress of the Bridge Initiative and future Bridge cycles, read the Brief Bridge Report 2019.
