Manuel Rodrigues became blind as a child, but went on to become a successful businessman. He dedicated much of his life to fighting for the rights of children with disabilities in Guinea-Bissau, where they are often hidden away or abandoned.
Sadly, Manuel passed away in May 2020, but his work is continued by his organization AGRICE. In 2017 Manuel Rodrigues was honoured by the World’s Children’s Prize and now, he is nominated to become the WCP Decade Child Rights Hero 2021. P>
