Just over 100 village children as well as several deaf and blind youngsters from Krousar Thmey took part one morning in interactive games and workshops developed by the Disability Participate Project to raise awareness about four handicaps (visual, hearing, mental and physical). The aim : to make children aware of the challenges handicapped people have to face daily, and solutions to help them fit better in to society.
In the evening 70 deaf or blind youngsters performed their show of songs, traditional dances and circus acts, spreading the message :”With or without a handicap, all children have the same right to access education”.
