Team Hero: inclusion of all youths
One mother looks to raise awareness about commonalities of disabilities within the community. Inspired by her own experiences with her son who has Global Development Delay, Reem AlFranji decided to create a cartoon — Team Hero — that will appeal towards the general public; tackling social issues such as education, children’s rights, and humanitarian issues.
“As a mom, I hope to spread the awareness among the community to include our kids with disabilities and have them included in school and social events, as well as public places, and help the parents to get children with disabilities out of their homes and not just keep them at home just because they’re afraid their children will be discriminated or violated; to make the community safe for every child.”
