 Whether through River Blindness, Vitamin A deficiency, cataracts or trachoma, there are an estimated 1,250,000 blind people in Ethiopia, with a further 2 million suffering from low vision. Over 90 visually impaired children call the Mek'ele Blind School home. However, both in the northern Tigray region and throughout the country, many children either do not know about the school, or are unable to pay their way through the gates. Although it is sorely lacking in every way possible, children that are brought to the school, or in some cases abandoned here, have a better chance of a future than those who don’t find their way here. The children of Mek'ele show an eagerness for education, and pure ambition for success in the future, despite their visual impairments.
