Accordion, St. Francis Madera School for the Blind
This photograph was taken in Madera, Soroti, Uganda at an extraordinary school run by and housing extraordinary people.
The visually impaired in East Africa don’t have a lot of choices and often face abandonment or worse. St. Francis is a boarding school by necessity. One of the ways the kids (ranging from 3 to late teens) expand their creativity, learn teamwork, blow off steam, and generally have fun is through the school band.
If you’d like to know more about the school and what it needs, send me a note.
