Date: December 3, 2013

Today, December, 3, seven young people exhibit their photographs in the exhibition "The world, the way I see it", in the lobby of the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family. The exhibition, in its 5th edition, is organized by Keystone Moldova with the purpose to emphasize the abilities of persons with disabilities and to prove that the same values prevail in their lives, as in the life of any person.

The photos from the exhibition were made by young people with intellectual disabilities. Some of them have lived for several years in the Residential Institution for Children with Mental Disabilities (boys) in Orhei and were reintegrated into family and community with the support of the "Community for All - Moldova" Program, implemented by Keystone Moldova. The authors of the photos were first trained on how to use a camera, after which they were encouraged to photograph the places and the people they were fond of.

























"This is my home"...
"This is my workplace"...
"This is my mother"...
"I cut the dry branches of these trees"...
"This is my dog"...

These are just a few of the topics which were of interest to the young people and which they wanted to imprint on the photos and share them with the world. Thus, the photographs displayed this year present simple and beautiful moments in a man's life: moments with family members, neighbors and the town they live in, their workplace, animals and daily occupations.

The authors of the photographs, together with members of their families, participated in the inauguration of the exhibition. All authors were awarded diplomas of participation and a photo camera as a prize.
The exhibition is organized by Keystone Moldova, in partnership with the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family. The event is carried out within the project "Media Promotion of the Social Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities", funded by Open Society Foundations/Health Media Initiative.

Keystone Moldova contributes to reformation of the system of care and social protection of persons with disabilities in view of their social inclusion, through the "Community for All - Moldova" Program. The "Community for All - Moldova" Program is implemented in partnership with the MLSPF, with the financial support of the Open Society Foundations/Mental Health Initiatives and Soros-Moldova Foundation.
