Saturday the 4th December 2021 was all pomp and color at the Movers paradise. It was a moment of celebration of parents, caregivers of children living with epilepsy and the youth in training.
The youth underwent a year-long training program through which lessons were offered on epilepsy, treatment, first aid, lifestyle, faith & belief, education, work , dating, family planning, socialization and independence which helped in guiding them as they positively live with epilepsy.
The training was targeted to offer social support as well as lifeskills that help them cope in the community. Most families experience discrimination for having a child living with epilepsy as it is associated with demon possession, curses or witchcraft.
