The The idea behind Mulberry Tree (MT) began when Diana was coordinating some training for the persons with disabilities (PwDs) while working at “Helm” NGO. During the training, a girl with visual impairment was sharing her experience when she wanted to join the theatre team in her college. While she was expressing her feelings of discrimination and bullying she faced from her classmates because of her disability and because of the thick glasses that were appearing her eyes much wider than they are, Diana remembered some obstacles she had encountered at one age when she decided to go beyond what she felt and believed.
