The launch ceremony of the three-year project TADMEEN - financed by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation - was held on May 7th in Khartoum. TADMEEN: Social inclusion, human capital development and protection of vulnerable groups within migrant communities, of refugees and hosts - aims to promote the Rights and socio-economic inclusion of disabled persons, women and the most marginalized groups, in line with the SDG 4, 5, 8 and 10 that encourage quality education, equitable and inclusive, gender equality, decent work for all and reduction of inequality.
Italy, in collaboration with Sudanese Institutions and Civil Society Organizations, has always worked to promote inclusion and respect for the most marginalized groups, playing a propulsive role because disability must be considered as a natural condition to be approached with the purpose of increasing respect for ourselves.
The Italian Cooperation promotes - as described in the recent Guidelines on Disability and Social Inclusion and on Guidelines for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment - the mainstreaming of the concept of disability and gender equality and empowerment in International Cooperation. In Sudan, AICS has 6,7 million Euros in initiatives aimed at strengthening equality, inclusion of vulnerable groups, gender equality and women's empowerment by strengthening the capacities and skills of the Sudanese public administrations.
