Project: A brighter chance after accidents
My project is about children. For me every child is special and every child deserves to shine, no matter what. Being a person who loves children a lot, I believe it will easy for me to work with and for them. It is a project oriented to the children in Seychelles especially those with special needs.
I have chosen to work with children up to 18 years but hoping I could incorporate youths up to 25. I would like to concentrate on those who have been involved in any type of accident, mainly road and automobile accidents.
Every year many children here and around the world becomes victims of negligence driving or simply not paying attention to the road themselves, unfortunately lives are lost, but some do manage to survive. Those who are lucky enough will only get few scratches but many are severely affected, emotionally or physically, in some cased both.
