Section Expectation

Our primary goal is to explore how disability is viewed across cultures in Africa to empower and to offer opportunities for students to compare, contrast, and conceptualize what they learn for use advocacy and systemic change. It also has the goal to explore a supportive pathway into educational systems and community life for immigrant and refugee students in K-12 schools and post-secondary programs. Students are exposed to an in-depth understanding of African cultures with regards to disability and cultural communication.
