Humans of the World: Stephen from Kenya

Stephen handles a Special Class in Kenya that teaches pre-vocational skills to kids with physical disabilities, ages 6 to 18. Some of the lessons are on basic agriculture, bead work, activities of daily living, and math and language, among others.

He started teaching kids with special needs in 1994 and he believes the experience built him up individually. He discovered that though his students are physically challenged, they have different talents and can be very smart.

Stephen stresses that disability is not inability. People with disabilities are abled differently and it’s a matter of adjusting their environment accordingly to suit their needs
