The object of this project is to bring together many people around the United States and possibly other country who have a skin condition known as Vitiligo. This is a new project that my niece, who has vitiligo, wants to pursue. In order to do this, of course, we must start somewhere, whether it be teaching people about what it us, or simply gaining recognition. So many people know about Cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other diseases, and we don't believe that Vitiligo should go unnoticed.
We have not quite made an impact yet but we have plans to do so in the near future.
The whole Idea is to come up with a program to have a vitiligo "camp." During this camp, kids who have this condition will have experiences to build self-esteem, confidence, and comfortability with themselves. Many people freak over pimples, zits, and minor things that heal over time. But what about the kids who are made fun of because of their skin? This is a life-long condition that doesn't exactly heal.
