Korea-ILO Fellowship Program

???????????? width= 2008 PROGRAM | 2007 PROGRAM | 2006 PROGRAM | 2005 PROGRAM
Although people with disabilities comprise a significant percentage of the world's poor, most have been excluded from the very experiences---social, educational and vocational---that could lead them out of poverty. More than half the world's disabled people---a total of 370 million---live in Asia and the Pacific Region. Of them, 238 million are of working age. In many countries, they are identified as among the poorest of the poor and are the most socially excluded and politically neglected group.

Consider the following figures. According to UN estimates, only 10 percent of disabled children attend primary school in this region. The unemployment rate of adults with disabilities is estimated to be between 50 to 80 percent. And, even in some of the most developed nations in the region, only small percentages of people with disabilities receive vocational training. Yet, we know that when disabled persons have access to education and vocational training, they can make productive workers and successful entrepreneurs.
