An NGO in Abu Dhabi has set up a project at the sidelines of the current Special Olympics World Games 2019 here, where specially-abled people are being sharpened with tailoring skills.
These special people also teach visitors how to stitch once they learn the craft.
Inside the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, Zayed Higher Organisation has been set up where specially-abled people display their stitching skills.
The specially-abled people were seen guiding the visitors on how to operate a sewing machine and also how to perfect their tailoring artistry.
As per the latest sports news, “It is a very good initiative working with these special persons. This is fantastic,” Andrea Schmucki, whose daughter Arlette Schmucki is participating in the Special Olympics World Games 2019, told one of the sources.
Ahmed Alhamadi, Zayed Higher Organisation executive added saying, “We are working very hard to tell the society that we want to change the lives of these people. There are many who wants to work and they can work. Right now, 111 students and 18 teachers are working for this project.”
