Type: Primary School serving Disabled Students Location: Ilala School District – Dar es Salaam, Tanzania Number of Students: 1,200 Specialty Population: ~60 blind; ~60 deaf
In Tanzania, to ensure that children with disabilities have access to teachers who are trained in education techniques for disabled students, children with disabilities are segregated, rather than included in traditional primary schools. RAWLI established a relationship with the Uluru Mychanganyiko Primary School to support these students. The school works to provide career opportunities for students and helps them learn to accommodate their disabiilities. Blind and deaf students live onsite at the school in dorms.
RAWLI has donated braille books, magazines and educational teaching materials to the school’s library for the blind.
