Child With Disabilities in Uruzgan Overcomes Obstacles to Gain Education

A child with disabilities in Trinkot, the center of Uruzgan, travels two kilometers with his hands from home to school for education.

Mohammad Karim, a 13-year-old who daily travels this distance from Khairo Kariz area in the southeast of Trinkot with his little sister, has big dreams.

Mohammad Karim told TOLOnews: "It is very difficult for me to come to school. Sometimes people bring me here on their backs or by car."

In addition to his disability, Mohammad Karim also does not have a father.

Sediqa, Mohammad Karim's mother, said she hopes her son has a bright future.

"I hope my child can see the results of his efforts in the future and become a doctor or an engineer," She said.

"I hope my brother becomes a competent engineer," said Marjana, Mohammad Karim's sister.

Mohammad Karim's teacher said that despite these challenges, he always arrives at school on time and is an active student.

"He comes with difficulty. He is without a father and has no resources to help him," said Naqibullah, Mohammad Karim's teacher.

"He has many problems. He arrives home two hours later than other children," said Saleh Mohammad, Mohammad Karim's neighbor.

Local officials in Uruzgan pledged to help the child.

Qudratullah, acting head of the Martyrs and Disabled Affairs Department of Uruzgan, said: "This child, who eagerly goes to school with his hands, we are fully prepared to facilitate him."

Agha Wali Quraishi, the head of Information and Culture of Uruzgan, said: "His problem should be addressed and this child should be encouraged to continue his education."

In addition to Mohammad Karim, there are several other disabled children in Uruzgan who continue their education despite their disabilities. However, the families of these children are asking the authorities to establish special educational centers for them.
