Helping The Blind
Meet Mr Njerere
Having to deal with sight loss or low vision is merely one of the challenges that the visually impaired are facing when living life. Blind individuals are just like anyone else but they just can’t see. Is this case as simple in real life as in our minds, though? We have built a world around us that serves the majority. That means that any individual different than the average, such as the visually impaired, faces difficulties because they’re not what is considered to be average. Meet Hardlife Njerere who became blind when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor at a very young age. He has faced significant challenges in his life due to his blindness and despite him being learned he is struggling to get a job because of his situation. Hardlife Njerere has a Diploma in Disability Studies and ever since he has finished, he has not been able to get a job. And as a result of that he has been surviving through begging from the street and it has not been an easy journey for him since the economy is a bit shaky. Hardlife Njerere is a married man with two children. He aspires to start a small grocery store at home or find a job that aligns with his qualifications to support his family. We are appealing to anyone touched by his story to partner with us and help him live life like everyone else. There are many organizations
that support people with disabilities in achieving their goals and living independent lives. Local disability advocacy groups, vocational rehabilitation agencies, and non-profit organizations that provide job training and placement services for people with disabilities may be able to provide assistance or resources to help Hardlife Njerere achieve his goals.
