Social Inclusion Programme

In June 2022, NOVE signed an agreement with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to implement a Social Inclusion Programme for people with disabilities. Based on the agreement, NOVE manages the ICRC's Social Inclusion Programme, bringing the expertise of its board member Alberto Cairo, who has been in charge of the ICRC's physical rehabilitation programme for more than 30 years.

The programme consists of three operational areas. One is dedicated to social inclusion through sports activities, education, vocational training, microfinancing and job placement.

The second focuses on home care for people with spinal cord injuries and their families. The third, called Safety Net, supports people with disabilities who are breadwinners and face particularly difficult economic conditions. The beneficiaries are about 20,000 people with disabilities in total.

The ICRC-NOVE agreement helps to protect the rights of persons with disabilities. "People with disabilities in Afghanistan are among the most vulnerable, and the agreement with NOVE will ensure the continued support of tens of thousands of men, women and children with life-changing services," said the ICRC Head of Delegation in Afghanistan.
