The ASCL is also involved: with a book stand, as usual, and a workshop entitled 'What do you see? A glimpse into everyday life of youth with a disability'. This workshop will be presented by Willem Elbers (African Studies Centre Leiden), Anneke Donker (Liliane Foundation) and Emma Frobisher (Internatonal Institute of Social Studies). The Liliane Foundation and the African Studies Centre Leiden are collaborating on a learning trajectory about lobby and advocacy for disability rights. A recent study in Sierra Leone, which used the Photo Voice method to engage youngsters as active participants, has resulted in impressive images of their lives. The interactive workshop aims to open the eyes of the general public to the life of girls and boys with a disability. The workshop takes place from 13.30-14.30.
