FITA constantly seeks to maximise the use of existing resources, through the synergy created by working with other organisations, acting as a catalyst for the creation of new intiatives. The list includes, MITC, MITA, local banks, corporations, private businesses, government entities and training organisations. Throughout most initiatives, FITA works out the necessary operational frameworks and coordinates the use of facilities and human resources made available by partner organisations.
In any one project or initiative, FITA routinely investigates the possibility of involving disabled persons as part of the planning and/or implementation team, based on the required knowledge or skill. We promote the creation of inclusive environments where the participation of disabled persons is facilitated. We thus aim to allow individuals to contribute towards society to the full of their ability. By being allowed to practise your skills and share your know how you often discover new possibilities, exchange ideas and widen your interests.
This has in inherent positive effect on one’s self esteem and outlook on life. The right not to be discriminated against has to be complimented with the right to benefit from measures designed to ensure the independence, integration, and participation in the life of the community. One key requirement in this regard is dignified employment.
FITA’s projects and initiatives usually fall under the following classifications
- Policy, rights and advocacy
- Education and inclusion
- Training and employment
- Information resources and access to ICT
- Research (Statistical and Innovative)
- Information awareness
- Other services and initiatives
FITA actively seeks to identify ways and means of how ICT can best assist disabled persons, however we also realise that, a full and complete coverage in this area, is beyond the means of any one organisation. This is even more so, in the case of NGOs where human resources are limited.
Most of the proposals listed here are typically short to medium term. Longer term collaboration agreements are usually managed via direct formal contact. Should you feel that you or your organisation can help contribute towards improving the quality of disabled persons through ICT, we kindly ask you to contact FITA, so that we may discuss how the Foundation can best assist you in such endeavours.
