People with albinism are the marginalised of the marginalised. Due to deep-rooted cultural myths people with albinism face human rights abuses, discrimination and personal attack as a result of what they look like and who they are.
Khulisa Social Solutions, an organisation that focuses on addressing issues in marginalised communities has a dedicated project working with people with albinism. 5th Place was invited to conduct a morning workshop introducing emotional fitness using Shape of Emotion to a group of people with albinism.
The group participated with enthusiasm, giving positive feedback at the end of the morning. This participant’s contribution sums up the morning:
First of all I want to thank you for bringing this programme to us – with all of my heart, I commend you. What I’m taking forward is that I am the controller of my feelings; I own my feelings. At least now I know there’s this tool I can use to control and regulate my emotions on a daily basis. It’s my corner to go to when I know I have the wall I must break down.
