Project description

Casa Pia de Lisboa (CPL) wants to promote the rights and protection of children and young people, especially those who are in danger or at risk of exclusion. This project will take place in Centro de Educação e Desenvolvimento António Aurélio da Costa Ferreira (CED AACF), that works with deaf and blind population since 1986. CED AACF aims to enable and support the educational and professional integration of people with sensory disabilities, in particular deaf blind persons and/or with serious problems of communication, mainly promoting access to children and young people. There are 36 users aged between 4 and 48 years (average age 22-year-old).
