Empowering Youth

Shade launched a new initiative, the Community Club, in 2021. We invited youth from our village to join, with the goal of equipping and empowering them holistically.

One key component of the Community Club is advocacy. Shade’s Country Director, John Migila, leads regular sessions to educate the youth about albinism and spend time answering their questions. Great discussions have been born, and John uses his personal experience to bring the challenges – and joys – of being a person with albinism to life.
