Recruiting participants for the project “Transforming knowledge and activism for inclusion through engaging women and girls with disabilities in Vietnam in participatory research”
“Transforming knowledge and activism for inclusion through engaging women and girls with disabilities in Vietnam in participatory research” is a research project conducted by a group of leading researchers from Canadian and South African universities in partnership with Vietnamese disabled people organizations. The project is sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. We aim to examine how the educational rights of girls with disabilities have been respected and realized in Vietnamese contexts. Our study also aims to use research as a way of advocating for the educational rights and social inclusion of girls with disabilities in developing countries.
We wish to recruit 10 women and 20 girls with disabilities in Tu Liem District in Hanoi, A Luoi District in Thua Thien Hue, and Binh Thuy District in Can Tho. If you are:
- A woman with disabilities (aged 20 to 35) who is interested in and committed to becoming a trained researcher and facilitator, has completed secondary education or higher, and is able to facilitate conversations of girls with disabilities and advocate for their rights; or
- A girl with disabilities (aged 10 to 18) who has experienced any form of discrimination in and by the educational system and faced challenges caused by your gender, class, disability, or ethnicity;
You are cordially invited to cooperate and share with us your personal experiences in workshops and/or individual interviews.
