The second edition of the exhibition “The world the way I see it” was opened in Chisinau, in the hall of the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family. It includes photographs taken by children and young people with intellectual disabilities. Some of them have lived for many years in the residential institution (home) for children (boys) with mental disabilities from Orhei.

The goal of this event is to promote the positive image of people with intellectual disabilities. Children and young people were trained and encouraged to use the camera to photograph people, moments, places and things relevant to them. The photos reveal the vision of children and young people on various issues in their daily life: family, friends, school and colleagues, animals from parents’ farm, nature, etc. Through all of these small realities, people present at the event were invited to look at the world around them the way these children and young people see it.

Their parents and relatives also attended the photo exhibition. All authors of the photos have received a diploma of merit and copies of their works.

The exhibition is organized by the “Community for All-Moldova” project in partnership with the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family and is a part of the Decade of Social Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities that takes place from November 29 to December 3, 2010. The photos will be displayed in the hall of the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family the whole month of December.

The “Community for All-Moldova” project is implemented by Keystone Human Services International Moldova Association, supported by the Open Society Mental Health Initiative, in partnership with the Soros Foundation-Moldova and the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family. So far, 146 children, young people and their families have received assistance and support within the “Community for All-Moldova” project.
