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.
„Egy éve zumbaórákat tartok a társaimnak. Minden nap egy másik otthonban vagy a Sportcentrumban. Minden nap más helyre utazom. Várják, hogy jöjjek, örülnek nekem az otthonok lakói, nagyon szeretik a zumbát, a zenéjét, a táncot. Én is szeretem. És hasznos, mert mozgunk, edzzük magunkat. Puszi, Cili“
“I‘ve been holding zumba lessons for a year now. Every day at another home or at the Sports Center. I travel to these places every day, and resident of the homes are awaiting me. They love zumba, the music and the movement. I also love it! It‘s also useful, because we are moving, making exercise. Kisses from Cili“!
