          Damascus  - Workshop for Persons with Disabilities
          A  training  workshop  on  photography,  image  editing,  design,  filmmaking,  and  some

          important skills through small project management and marketing. Each trainee has been
          empowered to acquire a new skill appropriate to his/her physical condition.
          The number of persons with disabilities has increased during the last five years due to the

          war as a direct factor and its results such as the lack of medical care as an indirect factor.
          And this category is the most affected by the economic and social problems experienced

          by the society, not to mention the public view of disabled people as a consuming and
          non-productive category and as one of the biggest obstacles in the way of the economic
          development of the community.

          The workshop aimed to enable the trainees to use new and developed tools, and the
          results of their efforts were a clear and tangible indication of the workshop impact

          on their potentials and production inside the society and the transformation of their
          disabilities to an active force.
