International conference to discuss inclusion of children with disabilities in society
BAKU/GENEVA/BERLIN, 15 September 2011 - UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, The Berliner Philharmoniker, visits Baku to raise awareness
Four musicians from the Berliner Philharmoniker will visit Baku to perform with the Azerbaijan National State Symphonic Orchestra on the evening of 20 September. The next day they will play music alongside children from a boarding school for students with visual impairments and see a live-in institution for children with psychological and neural disabilities. The following day, they will go to a day care where children with disabilities receive education while remaining to live with their families – a model that UNICEF supports.
