Pacific and General

Vanuatu has been selected to start working on a pilot project to include people living with disabilities to join the seasonal work programmes in New Zealand and Australia.

The Department of Labour's Julie Rereman said the new project focused on the capability and not the disability of people to contribute to the economic development of the country.

Disability Inclusion Project Officer Neneth Garae told the Daily Post newspaper that she will meet the first five applicants next week.

If the project proves successful it is expected to be introduced to other Pacific countries.
