Madeline Stuart is an 18 year old model from Brisbane, Australia with Down Syndrome. As with many people with Down Syndrome Maddy struggled with her weight for a long time, and last year she decided to get healthy and chase after her dreams.

Maddy really wants to change the way people discriminate against disability through gaining attention through social media. She wants people to know that Down Syndrome is a blessing, something to be celebrated. “She loves the camera! People need to see how she shines, how her personality just bursts out.” Help Maddy get her message across by sharing her photos and her story and make the world a better place.

At UWEC, we are proud to have host Maddy and other persons with special needs.

You can bring your child, family member at our facility and you will be sure that we will take care in a manner that their beloved ones would!

Please visit UWEC with persons with special needs.

The team got an opportunity to watch the rescued cheetahs, elephant, African Rock Python, Giraffe in addition to other animals. For many of the participants, it was their first time to visit the centre after their school days!
They were largely impressed with the facility operations. The IGG staff were overheard planning to come back with their families and friends!

You too, can participate in similar behind the scenes experiences at wildlife education centre!
