Helwan University Music Faculty Special Needs Unit First of Its Kind in Public Universities

An amazing musical initiative that aims to make Egypt a more inclusive society.

Disable Egypt

Helwan University’s Faculty of Music Education are offering music and singing classes for students with special needs for the months of October through December, making them the first public university to take such an initiative.

The recently-founded Special Needs Unit under the Music Creativity Centre is run by the Faculty of Music Education and supervised by a select group of professors. The unit aims to ease the integration of the disabled into Egyptian society while casting a rarely-considered net to catch potential star musicians.

This makes the unit the first of its kind to be operating in a public university. This initiative aligns with the recent trend in Egypt to be more inclusive of individuals with disabilities, including the online employment platform launched earlier in the year designed for people with disabilities and a café in Alexandria staffed by people with Down's syndrome.

If you think more universities and institutions - both public and private - should strive to be more inclusive, let us know in the comments below.
