The cooperation of Armenian “Rolan Bykov” Foundation and UNICEF-Armenia continued in the framework of the 8th festival as well.

The program “I am One of You” was implemented in the framework of the project “I Have Rights”, once more to highlight the rights of children with disabilities, children who live in isolation and in most of the cases are deprived of the opportunity to get education. Whereas these children can reveal their potential and abilities, can make their investment in our society, if we provide them with appropriate conditions of education, involve them in cultural, educational and social programs, try to stimulate their development.

The International Film Festival for Children and Young People has been trying to assist children with such problems for many years, integrating them into the festival events, film screenings, discussions, work of Children Jury, exhibitions and concerts organized specially for them.

This year, together with the “Children’s Special Creative Centre”, “Philadelphia” NGO of children with disabilities and “Bridge of Hope” NGO for the protection of right of children and youth with disability, an exhibition titled “I am One of You” was organized where the best paintings of the children with disabilities were represented.
