Description de l’emploi
Four years after the revolution, different minority groups in Libya continue the struggle in attempt to find their rights, to participate in the political process, and to have a voice in the building of Libya’s future. The most basic of these rights is to get the needed information about the Election Day. Elections are a new practice in Libya and they are part of the democratic political process, which all Libyans desire to be a part of.

However, there is a challenge for a specific group of disabled people that as important as the accessibility challenge, which is receiving the information. Unlike other types of disabilities, deaf people struggle to receive information about elections, such as elections day, how to vote, rights and duties as a voter etc… This problem is not to the Election Day, but it lasts during all the electoral cycle for deaf people.
