FOCUSING ON THEIR FUTURE

Mr. Ali (above center) is one of the 10 persons with mental retardation and/or other developmental disabilities to graduate on Tuesday, January 25, 2005 from New Vision Photography Program, Inc.  Since January 2004, the students have received prevocational training in digital photography through the program funded by the District of Columbia, Department of Human Services.  Graduates will advance to a nine-week course at CVS/ Pharmacy, which will enable them to work at CVS's One-Hour Photo Labs.  (Above) Mr. Ali receives his certificate from Mr. Al Price, President and founder of the program, with Melenaie Otto of Penn Camera Exchange, Washington, DC.

"The students have been able to overcome tremendous obstacles," said Mr. Price, a professional photographer.  "It's been a transforming experience for many of them."
