The two pupils 12 and 15 years respectively are among the 35 blind students at Malingunde Boarding Primary School in rural area of Lilongwe, Malawi. Most of these blind Children come from needy parents unable to support them and hence find it hard at school . We have been assisting them with school uniform, toiletries, bathing towels, school shoes jerseys among others but due to limited resources, the support is not enough. There are also albinism students requiring sunshine lotion.
Tiyamike, a girl of 12 and Mwayiwawo, a boy of 15 in stanards 5 and 4 respectively are among the 35 blind students learning at Malingunde Primary School, located in the rural area of Lilongwe, in Malawi. The School is one of the 6 such Government run schools in Malawi which does not receive the necessary support from the government. Due to high poverty levels, there are problems hindering education that includes those affecting their own health (welfare) as well as limited learning materials
The support towards their welfare will help them have good health and able to reason well while school materials will encourage them to work even harder in class.
Physical disability is not physical inability and if the blind children are supported and are well educated, they will be able to support themselves and assist in the development of the nation.
