Adevic gives “positive assessment” of 2023 but admits constraints in obtaining financing

Praia, 01 Jan (Inforpress) – The Association of the Visual Impaired of Cabo Verde (Adevic) today made a “positive assessment” of the activities carried out by the association throughout 2023, despite the “constraints” due to the lack of funds to consolidate some projects.

The president, Marciano Moreira, in an interview with Inforpress, considered 2023 a year of “many challenges and barriers”, this is because the association survives solely on the resources made available by partners, collaborators and individuals who “are not enough” to respond to the demands.

“We can consider that the assessment is positive, despite the constraints, because we have managed, in a way, to fulfil one of our main missions, which is the education and training of visually impaired people and their inclusion in the labour market,” he said, stressing that inclusion is a complex process that must be worked on gradually.

According to the official, computer training was provided in partnership with the “Fundação Infância Feliz” (Happy Childhood Foundation), and he also pointed to “major gains” such as the funding of equipment for the students by the Japanese Embassy in Cabo Verde.
