Understanding Albinism

Understanding Albinism Seminars

We believe that mindsets and myths surrounding people with albinism can be changed through education and awareness-raising. We aim to educate people on the truths of albinism and fight for their rights in society. We conduct seminars called Understanding Albinism in various community settings. Participants learn about:

  • Genetics behind albinism
  • Characteristics of albinism
  • Challenges faced by people with albinism
  • Ways to support people with albinism

Giving Young Adults a Voice

Student Transitional Program

When SHADE learned that the government centers for children with albinism were going to be sending home the young adults who lived in them, we sprang into action.
