4 5FOREWORD

On december 3, 2014, on the occasion of the International day of persons with disabilities, the Global Observatory for Inclusion (GLOBI), the United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative (GEFI) and the Global Education First Initiative Youth Advocacy Group (GEFI-YAG) partnered to launch #drawdisability, a global campaign on disability and inclusive education. Our main objectives were to encourage dialogue and raise awareness on disability and related issues among teachers and students worldwide, and to create a global art project focused on disability.

Over 20 national and international organisations joined the campaign and contributed to its success. we created Guidelines for teachers in different langua-ges and accessible versions, inviting teachers and educators around the world to engage their students, both with and without disabilities, and to ask them how they see disability and inclusion within their own communities. children and youth were then asked to turn those ideas into drawings.

the response was overwhelming, and we received almost 3,000 drawings from 50 countries around the world: children and young people participated with brilliant creativity from china to Andorra, from washington dc to kibera, the largest urban slum in Africa, to the philippines, where blind children participated creating collages with natural materials, such as leaves and small woods.

One of the goals of the #drawdisability campaign was to promote active global citizenship, demonstrating to children and youth that what they have to say – no matter whether they live in an African slum or a chinese metropolis – can have an impact at a global level. For this reason, we selected some of the most powerful drawings and we prepared the #drawdisability exhibitions that were presented at major international events.

during the summer, we asked the public to vote online for their favourite artworks. the #drawdisability book is the outcome of this process. the 100 drawings displayed before you represent the great variety of contexts and perspectives conveyed by children and youth. Some of them portray positive messages of persons with disabilities succeeding and being happy; others portray disability as a burden, something we should get rid of. Interestingly, a great number of artworks are about helping persons with disabilities: these drawings carry a positive message of acceptance and inclusion, but they also reflect a limited understanding of persons with disabilities as people in need of help. All these messages are important: next to higlighting the need for our increased efforts to overcome stereotypes, they also teach us that where we may see obstacles and suffering, children often see beauty, strength, resi-lience and hope.

Art is a narrative tool of social transformation: taking part in #drawdisability children and youth truly became active global citizens. All we did was build the bridge between young people in kibera, kathmandu, Beijing, turin, Buenos Aires, and the round tables where decisions that affect us all are made. And through their drawings, children and youth are telling us what is the world they see around them, and what is the world they want to see in the near future. Let’s listen to their voices and create a more inclusive and empowering world for persons with disabilities, together.

children and youth with disabilities remain one of the main groups being widely excluded from quality education. UNEScO estimates that 93 million childrenworldwide, one in 20 up to the age of 14, live with a moderate or severe disability. In principle, these children have the same right to education, but in practice, theyare far more likely to be denied this basic human right. disability continues to be one of the least visible yet most critical factors in educational marginalisation.

By missing out on a quality education, these children and youth are denied the opportunity to realize their full potential, lead decent lives and contribute fully totheir societies. while many of the barriers to education faced by these children and youth may be physical and structural, they are also cultural and attitudinal.

this is where the rest of our children and youth come in. If children and young people are informed and motivated, their perceptions and actions can chal-lenge existing stereotypes, reduce discrimination and potentially change the lives of millions.

the Global Education First Initiative (GEFI), in partnership with the Global Observatory for Inclusion (GLOBI) and the GEFI Youth Advocacy Group (YAG), set out to enhance the knowledge, understanding and perception of children and youth have of persons with disabilities. And thus, the #drawdisability campaign was born.

the unprecedented response from almost 3000 children in 50 countries led to the exhibitions at major events during the course of the year-long campaign, including the world Education Forum (wEF), Incheon, republic of korea, in may 2015, the conference of States parties to the convention on the rights of persons with disabilities (cOSp-crpd), New York, USA, in June 2015, and the exhibition at the United Nations headquarters in New York on the International day of persons with disabilities, 3 december 2015.

putting every child in school is GEFI’s first priority, and that means advocating for the removal of all barriers to quality education and learning, particularly for the most marginalized children and young people. It is our hope that the wonderful selection of artworks showcased in this book will continue to inspire and encourage other children, youth, teachers and community leaders to carry on the campaign in their own schools and communities.

CHAPTER 1#drAwdISABILItY wOrkShOpS

the Youth Advocacy Group of the Global Education First Initiative (GEFI YAG) is a youth-led movement of adolescents and young people, created to further GEFI’s three priorities of ensuring every child is in school, improving the quality of learning, and fostering global citizenship. Advocating for Inclusive Educa-tion and the rights of children living with disabilities has been one of the key priorities since our inception in September 2012. despite, international agree-ments and national legislations recognizing the universal rights to primary education of every child, children with disabilities continue to face discrimination and are among the groups most vulnerable to be denied the basic right to education.

the Youth Advocacy Group, in partnership with the Global Observatory for Inclusion (GLOBI) and the Global Education First Initiative (GEFI), launched #drawdisability, a campaign aimed to challenge societal perceptions, and highlight the understanding of and responses towards children and young people living with disabilities.

From december 3, 2014, we invited schools to participate in the campaign by submitting drawings and sharing their understanding and feelings towards issues related to disability such as accessibility, inclusion and discrimination. Our aim was to encourage dialogue and raise awareness on disability and re-lated issues within educational environments through the medium of art.

this artbook features a selection of artworks received from 50 countries as part of the campaign. It is an attempt to bring the voices and experiences of children and young people living with disability directly to you. we hope you enjoy reading it, learning more about the issue of disability and inclusive edu-cation, and share it further.

This painting is a still life that was created by dripping paint onto the paper. I was inspired by a visit to an orphanage when I was 7 that housed kids with mental disabilities. Every drip represents a person and the vast range of disabilities there are. In a way, almost everyone in this world is disabled because disability can range from down syndrome to not being able to open up and express yourself. People with disability are often viewed as mental or physical defects, but they are humans that should be treated with respect instead of pity.

Humans have their crutches for the physically disabled, and for puppets, they have strings. The Marionette is an art piece that expands upon this message, displaying how the disabled are often labeled as “different”, not necessarily in a good way. On the other hand, our imperfections are our identity, and our flaws our characteristics. The piece aims to establish that despite their differences, the dance performance by the disabled puppet is just as worthy as any other. Disability is an issue that we must all be made aware of, and acceptance is the first step to a solution.

While most of us are striving for our dreams, there are many people who haven’t had any chances to roll the dice of their life and excluded from equal opportunities to study just because they have handicaps. PWDs have rights to get fair educations as we do and to chase their dreams. They need our love and attention as well as some technological aids which will support them to study more easily.Please give a hand to make our society fair and just.

In my artwork, I portrayed the characteristics of Bipolar disorder. The facial expression consists of two sides: if we cover the right side of the drawing with a piece of paper we see a self-confident, optimistic person, full of positive energy. The right side of the face by itself expresses hopelessness and lack of interest, which is the other extremity of the Bipolar disorder. The portrait as a whole illustrates society’s perception of the Bipolar disorder: it seems that there is something confusing about the portrayed person - she seems quite normal, but because of her strange, asymmetrical grimace she seems also creepy. I think this is the case of bipolar people in the society.

DESCRIPTIONS OF THE DRAWINGS

Africa

1. Ngebedisabled people should take part in all the daily life activities.3. danniella Noemie Hulbert It is the story of how danniella’s dad got disabled after a motorbike accident as well as his life.4. kyongola Kitumbadrawing of a disabled person.5. Emmanuel Godswill AddyA boy who doesn’t want to give up on his dreams of art. he’s an orphan who takes care of himself. Even though he is armless he draws and does everything with his feet.8. Arian Nellywe holds hand and walk together. we do great things that make everybody happy.

Americas8. rachel Yaothis painting is a still life that was created by dripping paint onto the paper. I was inspired by a visit to an orphanage when I was 7 that housed kids with mental disabilities. Every drip represents a person and the vast range of disabilities there are. In a way, almost everyone in this world is disabled because disability can range from down syndrome to not being able to open up and express yourself. people with disability are often viewed as mental or physical defects, but they are humans that should be treated with respect instead of pity.9. davonnah GreenI made a fun colored drawing of Ann (nee Billington) cassell. She won the First National Association of the deaf - NAd miss deaf America crown. She was very happy.10. ricky Fuenteshice una persona con discapacidad que cruza por un puente al mundo de las personas sin discapacidad.11. Adam A. Sifuentes Aguilartodos somos iguales y tenemos los mismos derechos. “no a la discriminación”.

12. cristian Arley BlancoExpresses the happiness to be part of the school.13. Ale FariñaLa noche esconde sus colores. técnica de pincela con colores azules y rosado en cartulina azul.15. diana camila Gudenschwager RodriguezNo importa la discapacidad, lo importante es la amistad.16. mónica Fabricia Sánchez BeceiraIgualdad por mentalidad y discapacidad. La discapacidad está en el que lo piensa como una enfermedad. Justicia ante la forma de estudiar para todos.18. Spoorthi Cheriviralathe purpose of my drawing, trapped wisdom, is to persuade people to contribute towards the development of autistic children around the

world. my second grade teacher who volunteers at an animal shelter, had once brought an baby injured horned owl to school, who was diagnosed with autism meaning he couldn’t fly properly therefore was unable to be set free; this owl is the centerpiece and inspiration of my artwork. I believe that the people who are diagnosed with Autism are simply special in certain ways, and as my title demonstrates, they only appear to be different; inside they have talents which are trapped within themselves. Like those children, this baby horned owl’s talents are hidden from the rest of the world; my hands resemble its protection, and since an owl represents wisdom, I believe trapped wisdom is the perfect title. to make the national autism symbols, the puzzle pieces, stand out, I filled them in with their corresponding colors making my entire drawing black and white except for the nails, emphasizing my purpose.19. ryan LeeAround the world people of all sorts face the disability of dyslexia. It can be difficult to cope with alone, especially for youth. Because of their vulnerability, dyslexics require support from others to prevent them from having self-doubt and built up animosity as they develop. my art piece depicts the frustrating situation that a young dyslexic may face. Unbeknownst to others, an internal struggle occurs that is only magnified by comments and insults.20. kisara Moorethis drawing reflects the importance of children with disabilities making art. creating art is crucial for them to express their hopes and dreams. doing so is such a powerful tool to unite children of various backgrounds and disabilities toward a common cause, and will inspire other children and generations of children with disabilities (as can be seen in the background) to contribute. Ultimately, such efforts can create a “New world.”21. James Chenhumans have their crutches for the physically disabled, and for puppets, they have strings. the marionette is an art piece that expands upon this message, displaying how the disabled are often labeled as “different”, not necessarily in a good way. On the other hand, our imperfections are our identity, and our flaws our characteristics. the piece aims to establish that despite their differences, the dance performance by the disabled puppet is just as worthy as any other. disability is an issue that we must all be made aware of, and acceptance is the first step to a solution.22. Soledad CañeteLos miembros de mi familia y yo. técnica sobre cartulina de color verde.23. Xavier mauricio hilario Luñonucotodos debemos estar unidos ante todo y no discriminar si algun amigo tiene una dificultad. 24. Saddat Nazirmy artwork shows that disabled people all around us and in every field are as good as anyone else. disabled people can be artistic, achieving, smart, athletic and brave. In my point of view, there is no human being in the world who is disabled.

25. Alejandra ConstanteEn el mundo todos somos iguales y no importa ni la raza, ni el sexo mucho menos la cultura así que no hay por que discriminar.26. Sofía ZandalaziniUsando un lenguaje actual y universal (los símbolos del teléfono celular y otros símbolos) la alumna quiso dar un mensaje en contra de los prejuicios.28. raveera Toqeermy drawing explains that people with disability are capable to do anything like anyone else in this world and they are proving in every field with their great ability and hardship to make our world a better place to live in. my personal belief and faith is if we all respect them and give them more opportunities, they will prove they are the greatest pillars of this society and they can make this world more successful, and modernized.

29. Alaa khalid Siddiquimy mummy taught me about different kinds of disabilities. She had depression for many years and is now recovering. All mental health problems are real. Sometimes it can be a matter of life or death. we should always take care of people with mental health disabilities by being respectful, kind, loving and supportive.32. Abdulaziz Al otybethis painting show me and brother in our national clothe.34. maleeha Muhammadthey also have dreams like us so we should support them and never let them down.35. mohamed Adnan See the person not the disability.36. Ahmed MokadamIn our center there is a child sitting on a wheelchair, he cannot walk but he can move around his wheelchair wherever he wants by himself.37. malak Emad Matterthe innocence of young people when the express them suffering, die of hunger, savagery and wars. Blame our silence.38. majed khalefa EbeedSports provide us with vigor and vitality.

Asia and the Pacific39. master Swastik Janathe mainstream school teacher is providing sign language to students in a general school setting so that the deaf student can follow the class-room teaching and communicate well. this is inclusive education.

40. Nilay Give me good food and save me from disabilities such as rickets, blindness and cretinism.

41. Aaditya Vardhan Gupta my drawing is a story of a lady who lost her leg in an accident but she never lost her dancing passion. with her prosthetic leg she practiced, participated and got a standing ovation in the final round from the audience.

42. Alina Mohammadwe want from the government to provide jobs for disabled people.

43. Zhang Gaoguo A little girl draws the rainbow and lets the blind touch and feel the beauty of a rainbow. with a childlike innocence and goodness, the author wants to awaken people to the heart of caring for the disabled.

44. Mahnoor mahnoor is hardworking student of grad 4th, learning in school with normal children. She is unable to hear or speak, but she can make great drawings, her classmates and teachers recognize her as one of the nicest girls.45.pitchayatida Simapromher mother is an encouragement to her and she motivates her not to look back and Never Give Up what you want to do in life.46. mikko miguel Calingacion the drawing depicts the philippine society’s diminutive awareness towards people with disabilities in which the ripple effect is for them, people with disabilities, to be left behind. though a couple of mandates have been circulated to advocate on the rights and privileges of people with disabilities the extent of public information and education has not been given serious attention. this perpetual problem has affected those with disabilities to a lot of extent like psychologically, emotionally, etc. If other children have been enjoying their rights and privileges to the fullest extent many children in the philippines are still struggling to go out and immerse in the mainstream society due to this lack of concern and to the larger community surrounding. It is my hope that through this drawing a little message of concern will be transcended to whoever gets the chance to see this. As a child it is my dream that the philippine society will be as caring and nurturing like the others and will serve as the best playground for all children regular or special they may be.

47. kim Siam this drawing illustrates a classroom scene, in which students are learning sign language. through this drawing opportunity, Sian first asked herself “what to do to help people in need?”. which eventually led her to the question, “why learn?” As reflected in the title, “the power of learning”, she attempted to express her findings that learning becomes much more powerful when we learn for others, than for self.

48. Zhengkun Yuetype of work: Oil painting descriptions: the word “disabled” is from “disable”, and the opposite of to disable is to enable. “Enable the Life” describes that disabled people don’t have to live disabled life. the author hopes more and more disabled people get involved in daily activities and enjoy the splendid life just like people without disabilities do.50. raamaansh Gupta the word ‘impossible’ itself says, I am possible. the same has been proven by a ‘blade runner’ in my painting who wins amongst the normal athletes. physically challenged people are no less than anybody in any field, in this world.”

62. maliha Jahan MaishaA disabled person beside a normal person can equally contribute to the society when they get the opportunity to express their talents. we should stop the ignoring attitudes towards them and help them to win the opportunity for expressing themselves and judge them with their ability not with their disability. I have decorated my artwork with this thought to stop avoiding the disabled persons for their disability.63. meassray Tihthe disabled also have the same right as other children. there should be no discrimination of the disabled in this world the handicapped need love and care from those around them disability is not the biggest challenge for those handicapped. this beautiful world also needs the disabled.64. Aras SulaimanyEducation right for disable children on the world is necessary and all children should help them.65. Fatemeh Fallahhe is artist although he dosent have leg. he is making his dream.66. dodge CrouchI chose to draw a picture of my cousin because he has a disability. he got dropped when he was a baby and his arm is twisted forward. he can still write with it but he can’t do that much with it. he’s nice to me. he just an awsome guy.68. Lee Sang Eunwhile most of us are striving for our dreams, there are many people who haven’t had any chances to roll the dice of their life and excluded from equal opportunities to study just because they have handicaps. pwds have rights to get fair educations as we do and to chase their dreams. they need our love and attention as well as some technological aids which will support them to study more easily. please give a hand to make our society fair and just.69. choong Yun NiIn all of us deserves to be treated equally. we all have the rights to study, work and play no matter who we are. when we meet hard times, we must stay strong and help each other.70. Ananda WiselyOftentimes, persons with disability become too conscious of their weaknesses or flaws, forgetting the bright side of life. then, they begin to think of themselves as ‘weak’, lowly individuals. Yes, I may have no complete set of limbs, but I still have dreams and high hopes for the future. Yes, I may have been born blind, but I can sing angelically, capturing the hearts of many. Yes, I may have that down Syndrome, yet I am a productive member of my family. I am productive. I am talented. I am an amazing individual. And I am not shy nor ashamed that I have a disability.71. Nurul SyahiraEveryone in the world has a right to hope. Even those with disabilities. Normal people should not make their disabilities as a barrier.74. Asia RamzanI cannot see but I can still paint with the help of my teachers and friends. I am thankful to have them in my life.

75. Alisha WaghA famous saying ‘ Faith can move mountains’ is absolutely true .Irrespective of whatever drawbacks we have to face in life , a strong belief in one’s abilities is absolutely essential as every human being has been blessed with certain virtues and abilities , thus enabling us to strive towards accomplishing our goals.76. devin Som Theanyhis name is devin, he is 13 years old. he is an orphan whose parents had a dream for him to become an outstanding teacher. he has been trying so hard to study; however he faces a lot of difficulties. he is physically disabled, but yet his mind is not. he teaches students all day hoping to become an outstanding teacher in his country.

77. Jack Thackraymy big cousin Jimmy has an intellectual disability. he likes going outside and watching the buses and planes.

Europe78. Elisa PiaI drew a child on a wheelchair. Other children are helping him and they are playing together.

79. Andrea ManovskaI want to help persons with disabilities.

80. Alessio D’intronoreal friends appreciate abilities and don’t look at what cannot be done.

81. tiago RibeiroNobody is perfect, all is equal.

82. daniela Gajuthe joy of living comes from the desire to be together.

83. katerina Mandilarireally now! If you try, you can help everyone.

84. Zarja OzvatičStudents are playing with each other regardless their differences. they are trying to show their support and understanding to one another.85. melis Ucokthe girl is jumping rope but the disabled boy not. An apple falls. A butterfly hardly gets away. disabled people are one of us. Never cast them out. Birds chirrup. Butterflies dance but they can hear and feel cannot see.

86. Basak BeliceSometimes shopping might be a misery too.why don’t people with no disability think about thedisability. please, think of us before designing thelife around.87. molnár Henriettathe girls are collecting flowers and fruits into theirbaskets while walking in the garden. the girl in themiddle who can see and speak well shows the neston the roof to the others.88. Anika Bracovi Vwe need to help people who need help,because all people are the same.

89. miriam Wohlfarter On my picture there is a girl in a wheelchair. thewoman on the picture is her mom. If you havea disability, you don’t have to feel different. thegirl on the picture can also go to school, havefriendship and can be beautiful. But sometimesyou feel lonely, sad and you would like to forget youillness. I know how it feels, because I have diabetic.It’s not always easy! I’m the only child in schoolwith diabetic.90. daria Bogomazovawe are different but we are equal! I see with my heart. I hear with my eyes. It’s difficult for me to move and to sleep. I’m afraid to wake up. I can’t believe it’s me. don’t be the traitor in our peaceful time! make your own exploit! Be near them! Share their burden!!! It will become easier for them.91. michele Petilli From darkness emerges a soul which at all costs wants to overcome the obstacles of the everyday life. the body is animated by dissociated movements, but the spirit rebels, challenges every barrier and interact with world bursting out.92. tsvetelina Tsvetanova Kurtevatrue Beauty Is Invisible to the Eyes.93. Eleni PasiatatIn this painting is depicted a boy in wheelchair that wants to cross the ramp to the pavement and somebody has parked illegally on the ramp. this kind of attitude is common in our community and it’s the result of the ignorance of the people about the needs of the people with disabilities.95. Becky McMillanAn acrylic painting that marvels at the achievements made by people with physical disabilities. It acknowledges the difficulties and hardships they have to overcome in order to achieve success . this painting is a celebration of their determination and character as well as their many great successes in life.99. polona MerteljIn my artwork, I portrayed the characteristics of Bipolar disorder. the facial expression consists of two sides: if we cover the right side of the drawing with a piece of paper we see a self-confident, optimistic person, full of positive energy. the right side of the face by itself expresses hopelessness and lack of interest, which is the other extremity of the Bipolar disorder. the portrait as a whole illustrates society’s perception of the Bipolar disorder: it seems that there is something confusing about the portrayed person - she seems quite normal, but because of her strange, asymmetrical grimace she seems also creepy. I think this is the case of bipolar people in the society. 100. Nasmah AljzaineI wanted to picture that everyone can be disabled for a short time. A broken leg or a broken hand for example. So be thankful when you are healthy, but also be nice and friendly to disabled persons. One day it could be that you need help or understanding.

51. Eloise Saw En Yimy piece of work is about equality and no matterwhat disability we have we are all the same. Insociety there are many people with differentdisabilities however we must be all treated thesame. we should never judge people by what theylook like because it is what is inside that counts.52. trubador m. Wiselywe shouldn’t judge those persons with disabilities, because we don’t have the right to do so. And even if we were given the right to do so, still, we shouldn’t tolerate the discrimination. the blind, autistics, etc., should be provided with the love and care they badly need. As we can see, they are special. we should be the ones who understand them. Give love, give hope.53. kim JiheonI believe, in space, everyone will be alright and equal no matter what disability they may have. 54.

DESCRIPTIONSOF THE DRAWINGS

Africa

1. Ngebedisabled people should take part in all the daily life activities.3. danniella Noemie Hulbert It is the story of how danniella’s dad got disabled after a motorbike accident as well as his life.4. kyongola Kitumbadrawing of a disabled person.5. Emmanuel Godswill AddyA boy who doesn’t want to give up on his dreams of art. he’s an orphan who takes care of himself. Even though he is armless he draws and does everything with his feet.8. Arian Nellywe holds hand and walk together. we do great things that make everybody happy.

Americas8. rachel Yaothis painting is a still life that was created by dripping paint onto the paper. I was inspired by a visit to an orphanage when I was 7 that housed kids with mental disabilities. Every drip represents a person and the vast range of disabilities there are. In a way, almost everyone in this world is disabled because disability can range from down syndrome to not being able to open up and express yourself. people with disability are often viewed as mental or physical defects, but they are humans that should be treated with respect instead of pity.9. davonnah GreenI made a fun colored drawing of Ann (nee Billington) cassell. She won the First National Association of the deaf - NAd miss deaf America crown. She was very happy.10. ricky Fuenteshice una persona con discapacidad que cruza por un puente al mundo de las personas sin discapacidad.11. Adam A. Sifuentes Aguilartodos somos iguales y tenemos los mismos derechos. “no a la discriminación”.

12. cristian Arley BlancoExpresses the happiness to be part of the school.13. Ale FariñaLa noche esconde sus colores. técnica de pincela con colores azules y rosado en cartulina azul.15. diana camila Gudenschwager RodriguezNo importa la discapacidad, lo importante es la amistad.16. mónica Fabricia Sánchez BeceiraIgualdad por mentalidad y discapacidad. La discapacidad está en el que lo piensa como una enfermedad. Justicia ante la forma de estudiar para todos.18. Spoorthi Cheriviralathe purpose of my drawing, trapped wisdom,is to persuade people to contribute towardsthe development of autistic children around the

world. my second grade teacher who volunteersat an animal shelter, had once brought an babyinjured horned owl to school, who was diagnosedwith autism meaning he couldn’t fly properlytherefore was unable to be set free; this owl is thecenterpiece and inspiration of my artwork. I believethat the people who are diagnosed with Autismare simply special in certain ways, and as my titledemonstrates, they only appear to be different;inside they have talents which are trapped withinthemselves. Like those children, this baby hornedowl’s talents are hidden from the rest of the world;my hands resemble its protection, and since anowl represents wisdom, I believe trapped wisdomis the perfect title. to make the national autismsymbols, the puzzle pieces, stand out, I filled themin with their corresponding colors making myentire drawing black and white except for the nails,emphasizing my purpose.19. ryan LeeAround the world people of all sorts face the disability of dyslexia. It can be difficult to cope with alone, especially for youth. Because of their vulnerability, dyslexics require support from others to prevent them from having self-doubt and built up animosity as they develop. my art piece depicts the frustrating situation that a young dyslexic may face. Unbeknownst to others, an internal struggle occurs that is only magnified by comments and insults.20. kisara Moorethis drawing reflects the importance of children with disabilities making art. creating art is crucial for them to express their hopes and dreams. doing so is such a powerful tool to unite children of various backgrounds and disabilities toward a common cause, and will inspire other children and generations of children with disabilities (as can be seen in the background) to contribute. Ultimately, such efforts can create a “New world.”21. James Chenhumans have their crutches for the physicallydisabled, and for puppets, they have strings. themarionette is an art piece that expands upon thismessage, displaying how the disabled are oftenlabeled as “different”, not necessarily in a goodway. On the other hand, our imperfections areour identity, and our flaws our characteristics.the piece aims to establish that despite theirdifferences, the dance performance by the disabledpuppet is just as worthy as any other. disability isan issue that we must all be made aware of, andacceptance is the first step to a solution.22. Soledad CañeteLos miembros de mi familia y yo.técnica sobre cartulina de color verde.23. Xavier mauricio hilario Luñonucotodos debemos estar unidos ante todo y no discriminar si algun amigo tiene una dificultad. 24. Saddat Nazirmy artwork shows that disabled people all around us and in every field are as good as anyone else. disabled people can be artistic, achieving, smart, athletic and brave. In my point of view, there is no human being in the world who is disabled.

25. Alejandra ConstanteEn el mundo todos somos iguales y no importa ni la raza, ni el sexo mucho menos la cultura así que no hay por que discriminar.26. Sofía ZandalaziniUsando un lenguaje actual y universal (los símbolos del teléfono celular y otros símbolos) la alumna quiso dar un mensaje en contra de los prejuicios.28. raveera Toqeermy drawing explains that people with disability are capable to do anything like anyone else in this world and they are proving in every field with their great ability and hardship to make our world a better place to live in. my personal belief and faith is if we all respect them and give them more opportunities, they will prove they are the greatest pillars of this society and they can make this world more successful, and modernized.

29. Alaa khalid Siddiquimy mummy taught me about different kinds ofdisabilities. She had depression for many years andis now recovering. All mental health problems arereal. Sometimes it can be a matter of life or death.we should always take care of people with mentalhealth disabilities by being respectful, kind, lovingand supportive.32. Abdulaziz Al otybethis painting show me and brother in our national clothe.34. maleeha Muhammadthey also have dreams like us so we should support them and never let them down.35. mohamed AdnanSee the person not the disability.36. Ahmed MokadamIn our center there is a child sitting on a wheelchair,he cannot walk but he can move around hiswheelchair wherever he wants by himself.37. malak Emad Matterthe innocence of young people when the express them suffering, die of hunger, savagery and wars. Blame our silence.38. majed khalefa EbeedSports provide us with vigor and vitality.

Asia and the Pacific39. master Swastik Janathe mainstream school teacher is providingsign language to students in a general schoolsetting so that the deaf student can follow theclass-room teaching and communicate well.this is inclusive education.

40. Nilay Give me good food and save me from disabilities such as rickets, blindness and cretinism.

41. Aaditya Vardhan Gupta my drawing is a story of a lady who lost her leg in an accident but she never lost her dancing passion. with her prosthetic leg she practiced, participated and got a standing ovation in the final round from the audience.

42. Alina Mohammadwe want from the government to provide jobs for disabled people.

43. Zhang Gaoguo A little girl draws the rainbow and lets the blind touch and feel the beauty of a rainbow. with a childlike innocence and goodness, the author wants to awaken people to the heart of caring for the disabled.

44. Mahnoor mahnoor is hardworking student of grad 4th, learning in school with normal children. She is unable to hear or speak, but she can make great drawings, her classmates and teachers recognize her as one of the nicest girls.45.pitchayatida Simapromher mother is an encouragement to her and she motivates her not to look back and Never Give Up what you want to do in life.46. mikko miguel Calingacionthe drawing depicts the philippine society’sdiminutive awareness towards people withdisabilities in which the ripple effect is for them,people with disabilities, to be left behind. thougha couple of mandates have been circulated toadvocate on the rights and privileges of peoplewith disabilities the extent of public informationand education has not been given seriousattention. this perpetual problem has affectedthose with disabilities to a lot of extent likepsychologically, emotionally, etc. If other childrenhave been enjoying their rights and privileges tothe fullest extent many children in the philippinesare still struggling to go out and immerse in themainstream society due to this lack of concernand to the larger community surrounding. It is myhope that through this drawing a little message ofconcern will be transcended to whoever gets thechance to see this. As a child it is my dream that thephilippine society will be as caring and nurturing likethe others and will serve as the best playground forall children regular or special they may be.

47. kim Siam this drawing illustrates a classroom scene, in which students are learning sign language. through this drawing opportunity, Sian first asked herself “what to do to help people in need?”. which eventually led her to the question, “why learn?” As reflected in the title, “the power of learning”, she attempted to express her findings that learning becomes much more powerful when we learn for others, than for self.

48. Zhengkun Yuetype of work: Oil painting descriptions: the word “disabled” is from “disable”, and the opposite of to disable is to enable. “Enable the Life” describes that disabled people don’t have to live disabled life. the author hopes more and more disabled people get involved in daily activities and enjoy the splendid life just like people without disabilities do.50. raamaansh Guptathe word ‘impossible’ itself says, I am possible. the same has been proven by a ‘blade runner’ in my painting who wins amongst the normal athletes. physically challenged people are no less than anybody in any field, in this world.”

62. maliha Jahan MaishaA disabled person beside a normal person can equally contribute to the society when they get the opportunity to express their talents. we should stop the ignoring attitudes towards them and help them to win the opportunity for expressing themselves and judge them with their ability not with their disability. I have decorated my artwork with this thought to stop avoiding the disabled persons for their disability.63. meassray Tih the disabled also have the same right as other children. there should be no discrimination of the disabled in this world the handicapped need love and care from those around them disability is not the biggest challenge for those handicapped. this beautiful world also needs the disabled.64. Aras SulaimanyEducation right for disable children on the world is necessary and all children should help them.65. Fatemeh Fallahhe is artist although he dosent have leg. he is making his dream.66. dodge CrouchI chose to draw a picture of my cousin because he has a disability. he got dropped when he was a baby and his arm is twisted forward. he can still write with it but he can’t do that much with it. he’s nice to me. he just an awsome guy.68. Lee Sang Eunwhile most of us are striving for our dreams, there are many people who haven’t had any chances to roll the dice of their life and excluded from equal opportunities to study just because they have handicaps. pwds have rights to get fair educations as we do and to chase their dreams. they need our love and attention as well as some technological aids which will support them to study more easily. please give a hand to make our society fair and just.69. choong Yun NiIn all of us deserves to be treated equally. we all have the rights to study, work and play no matter who we are. when we meet hard times, we must stay strong and help each other.70. Ananda WiselyOftentimes, persons with disability become too conscious of their weaknesses or flaws, forgetting the bright side of life. then, they begin to think of themselves as ‘weak’, lowly individuals. Yes, I may have no complete set of limbs, but I still have dreams and high hopes for the future. Yes, I may have been born blind, but I can sing angelically, capturing the hearts of many. Yes, I may have that down Syndrome, yet I am a productive member of my family. I am productive. I am talented. I am an amazing individual. And I am not shy nor ashamed that I have a disability.71. Nurul SyahiraEveryone in the world has a right to hope. Even those with disabilities. Normal people should not make their disabilities as a barrier.74. Asia RamzanI cannot see but I can still paint with the help of my teachers and friends. I am thankful to have them in my life.

75. Alisha WaghA famous saying ‘ Faith can move mountains’ is absolutely true .Irrespective of whatever drawbacks we have to face in life , a strong belief in one’s abilities is absolutely essential as every human being has been blessed with certain virtues and abilities , thus enabling us to strive towards accomplishing our goals.76. devin Som Theanyhis name is devin, he is 13 years old. he is an orphan whose parents had a dream for him to become an outstanding teacher. he has been trying so hard to study; however he faces a lot of difficulties. he is physically disabled, but yet his mind is not. he teaches students all day hoping to become an outstanding teacher in his country.

77. Jack Thackraymy big cousin Jimmy has an intellectual disability. he likes going outside and watching the buses and planes.

Europe78. Elisa Pia I drew a child on a wheelchair. Other children are helping him and they are playing together.

79. Andrea ManovskaI want to help persons with disabilities.

80. Alessio D’introno real friends appreciate abilities and don’t look at what cannot be done.

81. tiago RibeiroNobody is perfect, all is equal.

82. daniela Gaju the joy of living comes from the desire to be together.

83. katerina Mandilarireally now! If you try, you can help everyone.

84. Zarja OzvatičStudents are playing with each other regardless their differences. they are trying to show their support and understanding to one another.85. melis Ucokthe girl is jumping rope but the disabled boy not. An apple falls. A butterfly hardly gets away. disabled people are one of us. Never cast them out. Birds chirrup. Butterflies dance but they can hear and feel cannot see.

86. Basak BeliceSometimes shopping might be a misery too. why don’t people with no disability think about the disability. please, think of us before designing the life around.87. molnár Henriettathe girls are collecting flowers and fruits into their baskets while walking in the garden. the girl in the middle who can see and speak well shows the nest on the roof to the others.88. Anika Bracovi Vwe need to help people who need help, because all people are the same.

89. miriam Wohlfarter On my picture there is a girl in a wheelchair. the woman on the picture is her mom. If you have a disability, you don’t have to feel different. the girl on the picture can also go to school, have friendship and can be beautiful. But sometimes you feel lonely, sad and you would like to forget you illness. I know how it feels, because I have diabetic. It’s not always easy! I’m the only child in school with diabetic.90. daria Bogomazovawe are different but we are equal! I see with my heart. I hear with my eyes. It’s difficult for me to move and to sleep. I’m afraid to wake up. I can’t believe it’s me. don’t be the traitor in our peaceful time! make your own exploit! Be near them! Share their burden!!! It will become easier for them.91. michele Petilli From darkness emerges a soul which at all costs wants to overcome the obstacles of the everyday life. the body is animated by dissociated movements, but the spirit rebels, challenges every barrier and interact with world bursting out.92. tsvetelina Tsvetanova Kurtevatrue Beauty Is Invisible to the Eyes.93. Eleni PasiatatIn this painting is depicted a boy in wheelchair that wants to cross the ramp to the pavement and somebody has parked illegally on the ramp. this kind of attitude is common in our community and it’s the result of the ignorance of the people about the needs of the people with disabilities.95. Becky McMillanAn acrylic painting that marvels at the achievements made by people with physical disabilities. It acknowledges the difficulties and hardships they have to overcome in order to achieve success . this painting is a celebration of their determination and character as well as their many great successes in life.99. polona MerteljIn my artwork, I portrayed the characteristics of Bipolar disorder. the facial expression consists of two sides: if we cover the right side of the drawing with a piece of paper we see a self-confident, optimistic person, full of positive energy. the right side of the face by itself expresses hopelessness and lack of interest, which is the other extremity of the Bipolar disorder. the portrait as a whole illustrates society’s perception of the Bipolar disorder: it seems that there is something confusing about the portrayed person - she seems quite normal, but because of her strange, asymmetrical grimace she seems also creepy. I think this is the case of bipolar people in the society. 100. Nasmah AljzaineI wanted to picture that everyone can be disabled for a short time. A broken leg or a broken hand for example. So be thankful when you are healthy, but also be nice and friendly to disabled persons. One day it could be that you need help or understanding.

51. Eloise Saw En Yimy piece of work is about equality and no matter what disability we have we are all the same. In society there are many people with different disabilities however we must be all treated the same. we should never judge people by what they look like because it is what is inside that counts.52. trubador m. Wiselywe shouldn’t judge those persons with disabilities, because we don’t have the right to do so. And even if we were given the right to do so, still, we shouldn’t tolerate the discrimination. the blind, autistics, etc., should be provided with the love and care they badly need. As we can see, they are special. we should be the ones who understand them. Give love, give hope.53. kim Jiheon I believe, in space, everyone will be alright and equal no matter what disability they may have. 54.

#drawdisability is a global campaign, launched by United Nations Se-cretary General’s Global Education First Initiative (GEFI) in partnership with the Global Observatory for Inclusion (GLOBI) and the GEFI Youth Advocacy Group (YAG). the campaign’s primary objective is to increase awareness on the issues surrounding disability and inclusive education. It did so by inviting teachers, children and youth to reflect on their un-derstanding of disability and inclusive education, and communicate their thoughts through the art of drawing. thousands of submissions were received from 50 countries across the globe. this book showcases 100 exceptional artworks and their important messages.
