Independent living within the community
That is the main goal of Tsad Kadima's training apartment for youths and adults with cerebral palsy.
The sidewalks of Jerusalem are barely accessible to those in wheelchairs. The participants of the Jerusalem apartment decided to take a stand and raise awareness among the residents of the neighborhood.
Following a great deal of preparations, the participants met with community managers and business owners to help them understand and notice the accessibility problem. Additionally, they petitioned to the Jerusalem Municipality and helped bring to the removal of obstructions and hazards from the sidewalks and streets.
Tsad Kadima's training apartment helps the youths learn skills for independent living, and works to integrate them in the community in which they live.
