Extra Special Education 

Samuel* entered the world with cerebral palsy. When he was about 12 years old, his family sent him to stay at the state institution for children with disabilities.

Like most children with disabilities in Kyrgyzstan, Samuel received no education even though he has no clear cognitive disability. However, our volunteers recognized Samuel’s potential, and when the education project started in the institution where he lives, Samuel was one of the first students.

Now, a couple of years later, Samuel is reading simple books. He has a lot to catch up on, but there is hope, and a wonderful, funded teacher standing with him!
