We all have abilities, inabilities, strengths and weaknesses. Being differently abled means that in some way we differ from what most people in society are able to do. The most important thing is that you and your friends treat all children equally, and make sure that the rights of all children are respected. Together we can fight to reduce the obstacles for children with disabilities throughout society. And preferably start using the word differently abled.
According to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, children with disabilities have the same rights as all other children. They are entitled to extra support and help to have a good life. Despite this, children with disabilities are some of the most vulnerable children, not just among the Maasai and in Tanzania. There are 200 million children with disabilities in the world.
