When Denny Bradbury from the Central Administration attended a Mobility International conference in Germany and presented a paper explaining Maclntyre’s work and philosophy, the Czech representative asked if MacIntyre could help with a new project in Prague for which there was considerable enthusiasm but little expertise. Mobility International funded an initial visit of three Maclntyre staff to Prague. Following that initial contact, a group comprising staff and residents visited the DUHA (Rainbow) project in Prague, which provides residential and day care for 12 people. The main purpose of the visit was to show the people there just how much could be achieved by people with disabilities. Appropriately, the language barrier was overcome by the use of signs and demonstrations.
