She is ten years old and has never been to school: this is the harsh reality of Roseta, a girl with a motor disability that prevents her from walking.
She is ten years old and has never been to school: this is the harsh reality of Roseta, a girl with a motor disability that prevents her from walking. She has never had a wheelchair, so her life is all about staying at home while her six siblings go to school. He lives in the neighborhood of Nhampuepua, Mozambique, in a house made of matope (clay), covered with grass.
Through the younger siblings, enrolled in the Escolinha da APOIAR, our team became aware of this reality and went to meet Roseta (we found that she has a delay in speech development and motor difficulties that also affect her hand movement).
Without a wheelchair, adapted to her needs, Roseta would be at home but, with your help, she will be able to enter school!
We count on you in this mission to take Roseta to school, to the neighborhood, to the world!
May there be a new school year to come for Roseta too!
