Henry gets some more braille books from our volunteer Abdul


When volunteer Abdul found Henry in Moyamba he was not going to school. No primary school would accept Henry because of his blindness. Disability discrimination remains a big challenge in Sierra Leone.

Abdul found Henry a place at a residential school for blind children in Bo, the second city. There are no school fees to pay but our charity pays for Henry's transport to Bo and back to Moyamba every term because his mother has no money. We also pay for toiletries, clothes, books and pens.

In this photo Abdul is presenting Henry - who came top of the class - with story books in braille. Henry is an enthusiastic reader and he's making great progress with braille.
