With the aim of proving that being mentally retarded is not an obstacle to learn, handicrafts courses have been given to those who were directed to non-formal education because they have mild mental retardation by Canik District Directorate Of National Education, Canik Public Education Centre, and Special Education Job Application Center.

It has been observed that the participants with mild mental retardation could do things when shown or told. This is quite important in point of enhancing their self-confidence and socialization. Achieving something excited them and their happiness could be seen in their eyes.

The extensification of such projects will point out that being disabled is not an obstacle to learn.

    This is such an important subject! Young people with mild mental retardation really can do amazing things when their strengths are identified and the job/task is in this area. This is so important for their independence, role and contribution to their local society and self-worth. Extremely important! I hope such projects will spread to near and far. These are never easy projects,but the intangible results are so much worth it.

    The pictures look very nice. Such activities connect the disabled to life. İt is also observed in these studies that disability is not a barrier to many things.
