[STORY] TODAY IS DISABILITY DAY : READ SANIYA'S STORY
A long time ago, Saniya went to school, but he could not learn well because he did not have teachers who were specifically trained to teach children with disabilities. It was for this reason he dropped out of school,” says Sim Tha about his son Sanyia who has an intellectual disability.
He was finally able to join an education programme implemented by Komar Pikar Foundation (KPF), a member of the Cambodian Consortium for Out of School Children (CCOSC) led by Aide et Action and co-funded by Educate A Child (EAC).“When I heard about the integrated class in Oriousie II primary school, I felt so excited! I decided to bring my son to the centre,” adds Saniya’s father.
Activities in the centre aim to maximise potential and progress in terms of physical, emotional, social and mental development of children with disabilities. Saniya was provided with specialised services that included basic numeracy and literacy, social and life skills, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.The long term goal is to develop self-reliance and independence for Saniya so that he would not have any barriers and be able to participate in home and community life.
Then, Sanyia started to communicate with other children and made some new friends. “My son enjoys coming to the centre because he likes playing with his friends from the Centre and normal class,” says Sanyia’s father.
“It is very important for children with and without disabilities to learn together,” adds Kiran Dattani Pitt, Aide et Action Technical Adviser. “This interaction builds self-reliance and confidence. These are two important aspects with one’s ability to live a normal life, despite of any difference.”
Sanyia learnt to help cleaning the bathroom and tidying the classroom. “I can see my son has improved a lot. He can wash himself and he can do his own laundry,” says his father proudly. “He helps to prepare lunch and tidy up the house. He is even able to take cows to pasture and get water!”Now, Sanyia can also write some letters and numbers in Khmer and he can express himself through painting.
KPF plans advocacy activities to encourage access and inclusion of children with disabilities in public schools. “Mainstream learning environments can include children who may have particular learning needs,” concludes Kiran Dattani Pitt. “Creating a learning environment which responds to the needs of each child, including those with disabilities, are not only fundamental to including the most marginalised, they will actually benefit all children.”

A new International President for Aide et Action International: “Change and continuity must go hand in hand. Rooted in our mission to promote access to quality education for all, AEAI will continue to adapt the ways in which it empowers people to have control over their lives and 
future”
Ms. Yasmin ABDEEN, currently President of the Association’s South-East Asia and China region, was elected President of Aide et Action International during the Organization’s 3rd International Congress held recently in Aubervilliers (Paris).
“Globally, 57 million primary school age children are out of school. Aide et Action International will continue its ongoing efforts to promote and create conditions to enable even the most vulnerable to have access to quality education”, said Ms. Yasmin ABDEEN. This is important,” she stressed, “as education is the best tool to help a person springboard from his current state to a brighter future.”
Ms. Yasmin ABDEEN also emphasized that Aide et Action International’s areas of intervention are aligned with the priorities defined by Education 2030 and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. “Our actions have always been about relevance” she said, “and we will continue to work collectively with governments, other like-minded organizations and communities in this direction.”
The election of Ms. Yasmin ABDEEN reaffirms the continuation of the Association’s internationalization process, which is aimed at sharing knowledge and best practices between countries and regions in order to strengthen the impact of the Association’s mission. Ms. Yasmin ABDEEN complimented the previous Board and its outgoing President, Mr. Jacques LEMARECHAL, for their contribution to the development of the Association. She added that; “The new Board and the Congress are united by our common desire to bring change through education. Continuing the evolution process of the association towards its internationalization; the Congress has reinforced the need for a change, which is nestled on greater accountability, participation and respect for diversity. This is how we will operate moving forward.”
Today, 600 employees and 14,000 volunteers across the world take part in implementing Aide et Action International’s educational mission and contribute to creating access to quality education for more than 1.6 million children and adults.
