A negative perception of adults and children with disabilities is still widely spread among tanzanian society. People with disabilities in the developing world are sometimes viewed as having received a curse from God or as being subhuman. This system of beliefs and a lack of knowledge leads to devaluation of people with disabilities. Disabled children are among the most marginalized people in our society and thus are often abandoned, abused, raped or even killed.
One of the ways of changing these negative perceptions is by educating the community about disabilities.
Disabilities are not the fault of the person with disability nor anyone else, they are the result of many factors unrelated to anything of a spiritual nature.
