Stories From Children

Parents – we need your help here! Encourage your children to submit stories or photo collages of what they have been doing, to tell their stories about following their dreams and reaching their full potential!

It may be a celebration, information or advice to others, about travel, sport, hobbies or friendships and what they do to meet challenges!

Message to children

Albinsim does not define you, but can challenge you! Do your best, follow your dreams and you will succeed!
