Asking Children With Disabilities: What Do You Really Need?

Rani* was born with bow legs, a condition which led her to experience multiple surgeries since early childhood. For Geetha*, an unexpected incident rendered her with both mental and physical disabilities at an early age. They both have one thing in common, though – their love for education.

We sat down with children with disabilities, both from the North and South, to ask them one thing: what do they really want?

This #InternationalDayofEducation, Save The Children in Sri Lanka continues to advocate for inclusive and equitable quality education, to ensure that lifelong opportunities are created for all children and youth.
