Who we are

Albinism Umbrella is a voice for persons with albinism and we stand for the creation  of a sustainable environment for all person living with albinism and their families by  evoking their capacity and talents in different areas of expertise.  Albinism Umbrella works through existing structures and partner  organizations with similar objectives to achieve economic sustainability  and embrace albinism for national development.  Through such collaborations, the albinism community will enjoy their rights  stemming from the basic right to life which at times is compromised  due to cultural misinformation, beliefs and other prejudice about the condition.  These beliefs and myths are centuries old and are present in cultural attitudes  and practices around the world. Stigma and discrimination top the list of challenges faced by PWA.  These can be tackled through systematic and continuous sensitization of the  community to backroll mindset barriers as we strive to change  cultural practices which negatively affect PWA.
