Photographs taken on a Sightsavers trip to visit projects in Uganda have been featured in the world news section of The Guardian.

Photographer Graeme Robertson took the portraits of students at Bishop Willis school in Iganda, Uganda. We spoke to the children about what attending school alongside sighted pupils meant to them; their happiness, confidence and desire to learn showed just how important inclusive education is.
