I find this post very inspiring. I have a sister with an intellectual disability and I always wonder what opportunities she has or that she could have. There is much impact on me that there are advocates in Africa trying to change the current situation of people with intellectual disabilities in education, employment, financial support, and so much more. I also think it is great that Special Olympics is partnering and supporting this team and I hope to see good things come out of it and also inspire others to do the same.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:47 PM

Religion:  Religion in africa is different than some might see.  Christian and Islam are just among the minorities.  Traditional African Religion is much more than some give credit for.  10% of the population still practice this religion full time.  Their expressions are found in oral traditions.  They believe in a supreme being who created and ordered the world, but experienced as distant and unreachable.
