Campaign for children with learning disabilities (CLED)

CLED Ghana

Campaign for children with learning disabilities (CLED) is a non-governmental organization in Ghana, which assists children who have learning difficulties. Pupils with special learning needs often remain undetected and then fall short when faced with the challenges of the educational system. That often results in pupils leaving school or their not receiving the documents necessary to be successful on the job market.

CLED has recognized these problems and has made it its goal to inform the public and to establish aid programs in the educational system. The coordinators also designed an extensive concept for further education, which addresses parents, teachers and...

Kenya Society for the Blind

In Kenya there are a number of organizations which support the education and rehabilitation of the blind and low vision.

Home visits

Hausbesuch

Thanks to the efforts of the teaching staff we were able to visit two pupils at home again this year. We were very warmly welcomed by the families. Not only the pupils’ parents sat down with us for a cup of tea, but the whole of the wider family came to welcome us as their guests. We talked about the challenges that families with visually impaired children have to overcome. Above all, the parents told us about the relief of being educated about their child’s impairment and being able to receive concrete help. Usually, parents don’t even know that their children have the right and the possibility of going to school. They especially value the school with the Special...
