WDSD 2018 “My contribution to community” – Albania

All people with Down syndrome must have opportunities to contribute to the community and live valued lives, included on a full and equal basis with others, in all aspects of society.
For World Down Syndrome Day 2018, EDSA has asked their members all over Europe to submit personal statements to tell the world what people with Down syndrome bring to their communities. Starting 1 March we bring 21 examples explaining how people with Down syndrome can and do make meaningful contributions whether in schools, workplaces, in social, political and public life, culture, media, leisure and sport.

Kolegët  e vlerësojnë shumë punën e tij dhe ndihen shumë pozitivë kur punojnë me Arjon. Kur ata janë të lodhur, Arjo nxjerr Ipadin e tij, dhe i bën të gjithë të kendojnë dhe të kërcejnë muzikë tradicionale shqiptare.
