What problem does your idea solve?

Especially in developing countries, most of People Who live with disabilities are unemployed, eventhough their Education has improved, There is still discrimantion regarding disabled Persons while hiring candidates for Job opportunities, my idea is About helping Children develop some talents Like studying Playing piano, guitars, Playing tenis, Writing stories, drawing cartoons etc in order to prepare for their bright future

Explain your idea

Many Disabled Children in devoping countries drop out Early From schools, even those Who try to graduate, face unmployment situation, due to discrimination or Society believes that they are not able, by helping Children to Develop some talents, i will prepare them to face the future as artists, Writers, singers or entepeneurs, able to use their talents in order to build their own life. As i am able Foundation we are helping our Children developping many talents to our Children through music instruments, drawing etc, in order to prepare them a bright future.

Who benefits?

Many will benefit from my idea, apart Children not above eighteen but also their parents And The whole Society.

How is your idea unique?

Children must be cared enough and when they are disabled they need more attention , as an educator and a Child advocator i want to raise parent's and the whole Society that behind our Disabled Children they are Hiden talents which can be useful when discovered Early.

Prepare a bright future, a good slogan as many are not aware of that every one  who has ability to assist a disabled youth has a role to play as it is not only a government or institution  responsibility we need to join our hands and that can be done  ''PLAY YOUR PART''
