Why become a member ?
INÉÉI - PSH is an organization that has chosen a participatory organizational structure. Members actively contribute to the development and democratic operation of the organization. Various mechanisms for active participation are put forward to ensure that each member's involvement is recognized and his or her voice respected. What's more, our active members in good standing can also contribute to governance by joining the Board of Directors as a member, or by sitting on various committees set up by the Board. Close collaboration between the various members and the INÉÉI-PSH work team is essential.
Representation activities and events are offered to members, and although the organization is still young, its dynamism is reflected in the activities and projects carried out By and For PWD.
We also have allied members who actively contribute to the creation of safe, egalitarian and inclusive communities.We work in complementarity to ensure the social participation and economic inclusion of people with disabilities, so our team wishes to collaborate closely with all the social players involved in the development of a safe, equitable, egalitarian and inclusive society.
