General description of the Institution

Budpaest School for the BlindThe Budapest School for the Blind is the only state school in Hungary providing services for blind from the age of 3-24 reaching towards the whole country. It has a kindergarten, a primary school, a special vocational training school, a resource center, a boarding school for the students from the countryside and also children's home for the children under state care.

At least 50 percent of the student population has additional needs besides the visual impairment. There is a school program for MDVI children and a separate program for deaf-blind students.

The leadership and the staff of the institution have a strong concern for the future of the MDVI youngsters leaving the school. At present there is not many decent places for them to go, where they can have a meaningful adult life with work, social activities encouraging them to use their skills for everyday situations.

This project helps the school to exchange and also to gather experiences and up-to-date information with other European partners about the work situation with MDVI. In the frame of the project one of our goals to start to adapt our curriculums to help the MDVI individuals to be prepared in a more adequate way for the adult life and we also plan to foster a future day-care center with a sheltered workplace for the above mentioned population.

motivation for the participation in j.o.b.s. MDVI
