“Our service is unique in Montenegro and in the region particularly because it involves transportation of our students at a time when the accessibility of the physical environment and transportation are at a very low level.” Marina VUJACIC
Through this service young persons with disabilities are enabled to participate actively in society and develop their potential. The services offered resulted in an increased number of students with disabilities, full participation in academic life as well as enhancement of their visibility in the local community. The project creates the necessary conditions for mobility, independence and education.
Montenegro does not offer accessible public transport. This makes mobility for persons with disabilities very difficult and reaching universities, workplaces, and hospitals a problem. Awareness about the needs of persons with disabilities is rudimentary and information is poorly available.
