Arab News - - News Saudi Arabia - SPA Riyadh

A mem­o­ran­dum of co­op­er­a­tion (MoC) has been signed to de­sign pro­grams and ini­tia­tives to en­hance train­ing and em­ploy­ment for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties in Saudi Ara­bia, the Saudi Press Agency re­ported on Sun­day.

The Hu­man Re­sources Devel­op­ment Fund (Hadaf), in co­op­er­a­tion with the Au­thor­ity for the Care of Per­sons with Dis­abil­i­ties (APD), has signed the mem­o­ran­dum based on a pre­vi­ous MoC, ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion and part­ner­ing in devel­op­ing leg­is­la­tion and plans for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.

The two par­ties agreed to im­ple­ment the MoC through a joint work­ing team that in­cludes spe­cial­ists from both par­ties. The team will be given the au­thor­ity to seek spe­cial­ized ex­per­tise and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of other par­ties and form sub-work­ing teams.

Hadaf will work to en­sure that all its ser­vices and pro­grams cater to the needs of peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, pro­vide sta­tis­ti­cal and qual­i­ta­tive re­ports and stud­ies, de­sign suit­able pro­grams and ini­tia­tives and par­tic­i­pate in pre­par­ing ed­u­ca­tional and train­ing pro­grams.
