On Monday August 1st, 12I welcomed guest presenters from Down Syndrome Victoria to speak to them about Down Syndrome and the successes and challenges that people with this disability face.

Debbie spoke about the work that Down Syndrome Victoria do in supporting people with Down Syndrome and their families, and in advocating for people with disabilities in the wider community.

Jenny talked about the paid and volunteer work that she does and helped to answer some of the questions that 12I had about life with a disability.

12I chose to donate their portion of profits from the Term 2 Market Day to Down Syndrome Victoria after studying disability discrimination as part of their Literacy studies in Term 1.  The $955 raised will help DSV to continue to support individuals with Down Syndrome and their families to life full and happy lives.
