The objective of the activity is to unraveled their talent, to support them, and to let them to accept as well as to express themselves through encouragement, help them to gain their self-esteem and self development.

They performed well in front of the panel judges, whom were experienced dancers and dramatists. The presented performances were including poems reading, dancing, singing, musical instrument playing and storytelling.

From this audition, 40 students were chosen and they will be sent for a series of training in the month of April.
Though not all students were elected in the end of the audition but everyone was moved by their courage and spirit, as the HOPE ambassador Charlie Young wrote: May all the SLD children be positive and be strong to face with all the challenges, never give up. They are just like the little yellow flower of the field, no matter how hard the environment is, they grow with a smile.
