Promo-tour “Valožyn for all”, final activity of the project “Valožyn without barriers”, took place on November, 1. In the framework of the tour the most interested initiatives were presented to journalists, touristic companies, social organizations, owners of farmsteads, and others.

The participants of promo-tour visited farmsteads and inclusive eco trail “Bielakorac” in Nalibockaja Pušča. All the attractions fulfill the requirements of inclusive environment for people with disability.  

Everybody interested, especially the people with disabilities, could take part in a ride on carryall and drive the horse by themselves. That unique service required creating a specially equipped carryall for people with disabilities and was created by the farmstead ¨Koni-poni¨.

During the walk along the first in our country inclusive eco trail “Bielakorac” the participants of promo-tour had a possibility to see inclusive boards and tactile maps. The information is written in plain language and doubled with Braille. All the boards and tactile maps are installed at a height of 40 sm with inclination of 31° and 21° that let visually impaired people and them who move in a wheelchair get the information.

After the lunch of local products and walking around the farmstead Nalibockija vasilki where barrier free environment was created, the participants moved to the farmstead “Honey world” where there was presented interactive program about bees, open air museum and local products tasting.

The farmstead “Rest on the river” provided the river walk on the first floating platform available for people with disabilities.

Sergei Drozdovskiy, the director of Office for the rights of people with disabilities, said that the main achievement of the promo-tour was the possibility of communication, enjoyment, and amusement.
