IOCC & Rebecca Raney in Montenegro

Rebecca Raney was a 2007 summer intern for the International Orthodox Christian Charities. Among other things, she

was a contributing member of the focus groups which drafted the first ever National Strategy for persons living with disabilities. The Strategy will likely be adopted into law next year. This is a crucial step for those living with disabilities to be able to protect and defend their rights and to develop including opening up access to public offices, education and employment opportunities. This initiative will also help Montenegro in its bid to join the European Union.
