In September DSi will be in the UAE, hosted by the Emirates Down Syndrome Association (EDSA), to deliver our self-advocacy training. 

The first stage of the training will be to train members of the EDSA to become self-advocacy group facilitators. We will then support them to establish a self-advocacy group for people with Down syndrome. The facilitators will support the group members to develop their skills and knowledge as self-advocates and begin to engage in advocacy work.

We hope to see some of the self-advocates speak at the World Down Syndrome Congress in Dubai 2020.
