Inspire and Empower​​

When children arrive at ALDS, it is often with eyes downcast , no voice, no smile, no name!

Join with us in our efforts to change this.

We would like you to create an inspiring and empowering video message for the children.

How to take part:

  1. Watch the videos below and pick as many as you like.
  2. Create a video of yourself signing the affirmation.
  3. Upload the video using the ‘upload your submission’ at the bottom of this page.

We will then send your message to the children at the ALDS. Your positive affirmation will help inspire the children and empower them to know just how valued and loved they are. 

Please note that all video submissions received will only be viewed by the members of the EDP organisation, the teachers and children at the ALDS. The videos will be used for educational purposes. In no way will these videos be used outside of their intended purposes. Your privacy and security are of the upmost importance to us.

You are Great

Please join us in this great event. We are designing flashcards for the children in the Ambo Lazarist Deaf school.

As part of the “Day for Girls”, Sexual Health program that is run in the school, we wish to provide cards on the different aspects of sexual education to assist them in their understanding of this very important subject.

You simply need to download the cards  and colour them for us. There is no limit so please do as many as you can! Please be as creative as you like with your designing but be mindful that the cards are educational tools.

When it is completed scan it back onto the computer and email it to:

(Check your spam for our response!)

or you may also post them it to :

Miriam O’Regan
Horner Automation Group
Unit 1,
Centre Park Road,
T12 H24E

Once we have all the cards back, we will laminate them and ship them to Ethiopia.
It will be a fun activity for us in Ireland to design and its both fun and and educational tool for the children in Ethiopia to learn.Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
