The best way to promote awareness of Down syndrome is for people with Down syndrome to share their own stories in their own words. 

We want to give you a platform to share your story with our global supporters both via our website and on social media. So, if you have a story that you would like to share with the world, please click on the "Share your story" button below. Be sure to include a photo or short video to help capture attention.


We can't promise to share all stories but we will share as many as we can. You can find latest stories below and on DSi social media pages:

Nada from Tunisia has been volunteering with the Red Crescent alongside her aunt. She has been creating posters and videos to raise awareness of Coronavirus and how to keep safe, and she has been sorting donations and preparing baskets for families in need.


My daughter Oana is 40 years old. We live in Romania. Oana is full of optimism and she has so much potential. She likes to dance, to do sports, to recite. She's friendly and has many friends on Facebook. Following her journey through the maze of life has taught me many valuable lessons about perseverance and maintaining a positive attitude despite facing incredible challenges. Thank you for the opportunity to share Oana's story - told by Oana's mother, Floreta.
