The insights surprised the government - and shifted policies

"Stop Segregative Programs. Self-stigmatization will remain for a long time after the program ends..."

“Strenghtening the Parents. Parents should not be afraid to exercise their authority...”

“One Size Doesn’t Fit All. Inclusion requires solutions based on needs, not on color...”

In a series of historic cabinet resolutions, the entire policy towards the Ethiopian community changed. Personal updates on impact were sent to each and every participant.
