The storyline of this documentary puts into perspective a special education system trend for visually impaired scholars, in a developing Third World country. It is set in a typical school session where a student gives an account of challenges encountered in a limited environment and underlies the absence of basic infrastructure (Braille reading and writing instrumentation) as well as the need for assistive information and communication technologies.
Kenya passed a bright new Constitution less then 2 years ago, where it is officially stated that disabled and special needs people must be treated equally to other citizens; how can this be the case, if blind students don’t even have access to books? Printing in Braille is very expensive, but is it enough of a reason not to do it? Derick’s story delves into the burning topic and tries to find a way ahead.
