We started the session with learning about 6 disabilities: visual impairment, hearing impairment, physical disability, speech & language disorder, Autism and intellectual disability. We also learnt about Human Rights and examined the articles of the United Nations Convention of Rights of Persons with Disabilities so we can be better informed during our future advocacy campaigns!

Sumra Ahmed, Programme Manager of NOWPDP’s Artpreneurs for Change, delivered an insightful session on how art can be used as therapy. She also described how this concept has been turned into a sustainable project providing art as therapy for children with disabilities.

This was followed by a presentation on business development where Razee Khan attempted to hyponotize the Ambassadors to be more financially aware! Ambassadors were taught skills to make awareness and fund-raising events successful. Sarah Ansari, Programme Manager of Skills Development and Market Access (heArtwork), also delivered a presentation on her programme and the products that they produce.
