For World Down Syndrome Day, we (Kehitysvammaliitto – The Finnish Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities) asked five amazing people to tell us what kind of pictures they would like to be taken of themselves. The results will be displayed in shopping malls all around Finland during the week.
The aim of the campaign is to inspire, raise awareness, and shed a different light on Down syndrome. A website was also set up to reveal the full set of amazing pictures, and to encourage people to donate for an employment program for young people with learning disabilities.
Look beyond Down syndrome. See the person behind it.
