Inclusion Challenges

To this day children and or people with Down syndrome are not well involved in many community activities as they are considered as incapable and therefore have no significant contribution. Some families hide them indoors and hence they are denied their right of inclusion with others. Their voice and needs are not heard and they are therefore not included in any decision-making process. In African context some communities have a myth that People with Down Syndrome are born as a punishment to that family for any sin they committed or as a way of sacrifices to get more wealth. We work with community members and do advocacy through various channels including the media to change this analogy and give society a different definition for the people with down syndrome.
