Worldwide only one in approximately 20.000 is born with albinism

In some African communities, people with albinism are seen as special and are even believed to have supernatural powers.

However, not all attitudes toward people with albinism are positive. In many African countries, people with albinism face widespread discrimination and prejudice. In most cases, they are even the targets of violent attacks.

Many African people with albinism are working to raise awareness about their condition and combat the discrimination they face and try to change negative attitudes to create a more inclusive and accepting society for all.

The exquisite beauty and strength of these individuals are truly inspiring, and their stories deserve to be told and celebrated.
