WE BELIEVE IN CHANGE

People with albinism continue to experience systemic marginalization and discrimination, as their access to basic needs and many other opportunities has been greatly compromised. As a result Albinism Advocacy for Access (AAA) saw the need to bring empowering programs that not only educates communities, but intends to bolster self-esteem and confidence in youths with albinism.

AAA initiates programs that promote access to opportunities, sports, education and all activities that brings full participation of the young people with albinism, particularly those in school. We partner with all progressive public and private institutions to drive the agenda for change in order to improve the lives of the youths with Albinism.

We push to balance narratives as many times we focus on killings, and never highlight when we graduate, own a business and that we believe is reason many leave school, and try to commit suicide.

We are aiming to balance narratives, show communities and many of our people with albinism that Albinism doesn’t mean inability.

OUR OBJECTIVES

  • Advocate for support of public and private entities to offer youths with Albinism access to empowerment opportunities.

  • Advocate for youths with Albinism to obtain full access to government social and health support.

  • Initiate programmes that promote self confidence in youths with Albinism. example #ICanBe Campaign.

  • Provide youths with Albinism with reliable information on opportunities in public and private sector.

  • Undertake/Run awareness campaigns in schools, institutions and communities to dispel myths and wrong perceptions about Albinism.

  • Link with Albinism organisations around South Africa and Southern African countries to ensure the programs are effective in the region as a whole and not just a section.

Our core focus is on the youth with albinism. While also sharing and collaborating with other organisations as our organisation is not focused on number of members, but numbers of individuals that participate in programs, therefore number of EMPOWERED individuals in various regions.
