With the conflicting situation in Sudan caused by fighting between the government and rebel groups, many intellectually and physically challenged individuals now live in poverty, classified as the most stigmatized and marginalized people in society.
They often live in isolation, excluded from their communities, education systems, healthcare and other vital services. Sometimes they are even hidden away from their families. With no access to healthcare and rehabilitation, added to the stigma, many women and children in these groups face oppression and a heightened risk of domestic and sexual violence.
Over the course of a few months, the team from The Red Pencil will achieve:
- Allowing individuals to explore through haptic materials specific and suitable for the development and enhancement of cognitive skills.
- As well as cultivating and enhancing social skills through fostering interaction goals via non-verbal means.
- Finally, enhancing the individuals ability to express emotions through art making.
