The Association EFI − The Self-evident Participation of Disabled Persons
For over twenty years the association "Eltern und Freunde für Inklusion e.V. Karlsruhe" has been actively working for the improvement of social participation for disadvantaged persons both within the city and the vicinity of Karlsruhe. Emphasis is placed on the "making conscious" of special conditions, such as inclusion, that can lead to success in social life. The association also attempts to influence the conditions positively.
This year, the association founded another working group that focuses on the transition from school into inclusive employment. Here, the goal is to establish a network of actors in the city and vicinity of Karlsruhe that is capable of advancing this process.
As a local initiative, the EFI is integrated into the state-wide Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Gemeinsam Lernen − Gemeinsam Leben Baden-Württemberg [State Working Group Learning Together − Living Together Baden-Württemberg].
