Abdi, from Nigeria 0 Abdi is 12 years old and lives with his uncle in northern Nigeria. He has epilepsy and often has to miss school because he suffers from seizures. Abdi has difficulty talking but his Uncle Abdullah understands him very well. 0 “Abdi’s father had to go to work in the city and left him in my care. He felt it was better to leave Abdi in the village where everyone is very fond of him. In the city Abdi would have had to stay home all day but here he can wander around, walk to school and play football with the other children. 0 “Abdi started to get convulsions when he was about two years old. We took him to a doctor who prescribed medication to make the seizures less frequent. Abdi tries to go to the local primary school every day but there are many days when he can’t go. Because of his problem he hasn’t progressed very well and is still in Primary Two with pupils who are as young as six. 0 “I think he would be better off in a school for special needs, but there isn’t one nearby. The teacher here has nearly 40 pupils in her class so she can’t give him the attention he requires and she hasn’t been trained to understand his condition. 0 “Abdi loves to go to school and often tries to tell his brother what he has learnt. He is a special boy but needs special care. I hope we can persuade the government to look after Abdi in the way he deserves.”
Grace, from Tanzania 0 Grace is 9 years old and cannot hear. She lives at home with her two brothers and three sisters 0 Grace cannot attend school as there are no teachers that can give her lessons to sign or teach her. Her brothers and sisters all attend school and she wishes she could go. Her family can understand what she wants and needs but there are no schools nearby to help her. 0 “I think she would be better off in a school for special needs, but there isn’t one nearby. The teacher here has nearly 40 pupils in her class so she can’t give him the attention she requires and she hasn’t been trained to be able to sign. I hope we can persuade the government to help Grace”

Washline, Haiti 0 Washline was caught in the rubble left by the devastating earthquake that hit Port-au-Prince, Haiti in January 2010.

When the ground started to shake, I was afraid” 0 Washline received crutches to help but she struggles to get to school. Her family have lost their home so are living in a temporary tent on the side of the road. Her parents do not have a car and there is not free buses to get her to school 0 Washline’s father has said “We hope there will be a bus route to pick Washline up for school. The doctors have said that she may not be able to walk properly for months and there are some days that she cannot go to school as she is in too much pain. We hope that the government can help”
