Momken Program – برنامج ممكن

The Challenge

The blind people – and generally people with disabilities – in the Arab world suffer from isolation and lack of cost-effective solutions that satisfy their needs, empower them to be effective in the society, and enable them to have equal opportunities in education and job market.

The Solution

An R&D program where researchers, engineers, and students work hard to provide people with disability the needed tools and support for engaging them in the community and making their voice heard. The team facilitates the communication and develop products and techniques which would help the disabled become active and contributing part of the society and the scientific research community without distinction.

التحدي

المكفوفون –  ومتحدو الإعاقة عموما – في العالم العربي يعاني جزء كبير منهم من العزلة وعدم وجود حلول فعالة تلبي احتياجاتهم، وتمكنهم من أن يكونوا فعالين في المجتمع، ناهيك عن تمكينهم من الحصول على فرص متساوية في التعليم وفرص في سوق العمل.

الحل

برنامج تطويري يعمل فيه الباحثون والمهندسون والطلاب لتوفير الأدوات والدعم اللازم لإشراك متحدي الإعاقة في المجتمع، وجعل صوتهم مسموعا. فريق عمل متكامل ييسر التواصل وتطوير المنتجات والتقنيات التي من شأنها أن تساعد على الاندماج والمساهمة في المجتمع دون تمييز.
