Proud parents of differently-enabled children
Captured moments of proud parents of children with disabilities during Awladna Forum.
After a first experience in 2017, the Awladna Art Forum took place between 27th March - 4th April 2018. Under the auspices of HE President Fatah Al Sisi, and led by the Ministry of Youth and Sports represented in the Egyptian Sports Union for Mental Disabilities, it was a fantastic experience which promoted inclusiveness for children with disabilities and empowered them and their families.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of the founder of the Forum Mrs. Sohair Abelkader, the support of the European Union (EU), UNICEF Egypt and other sponsors, a venue was provided for children with disabilities to perform and enrich their artistic talents.
During its second round this year, UNICEF team interviewed a couple of parents who were extremely proud of their children’s performances and indirect fight against stigma and presumptions regarding their abilities. Here are their stories.
