You beautify and enrich our world with your awareness.

The State is taking steps to increase the awareness of the difficulties experienced by our brothers and sisters with Down syndrome and special needs,  every year we spread the awareness of the importance of early and continuous education, and we strive to improve the quality of life of these individuals.
