Mafoune is a happy and confident girl, but she wasn’t always like this. An inclusive education project in Mali has been life-changing for her, and had a huge impact on her family.

“We didn’t know that she had any low vision issues,” he continues. “It happened suddenly on one day, she came [home] accompanied by Mrs Keita who had detected the issue. She informed us and ever since it has been a good collaboration.”
