I am a specialist teacher in the area of Visual Impairment.
I am also an artist who is active in poetry, writing, music, painting and story telling.
I am greatly inspired by talent and potential in children with disabilities.
The children influenced me to establish Special Schools Arts Festival (2012) and Computer Skills for Every Blind Child in (2014).
I have at least 17 years of working with children.
I trained at Morgenster Teachers' College and specialised at United College of Education. I am a graduate of the University of Zimbabwe with a B.Ed in Special Needs.
Conclusions we make about visual impairment without engaging the people usually mislead and further disable! I am happier when we have more and more people with visual impairments active and visible on mainstream platforms of socialisation and development. Indeed, technology in all places can benefit everyone- the visually impaired included! Issues of accessibility need serious consideration for the benefit of everyone! I appreciate your contribution!
We are currently working on hosting the 6th edition of the Special Schools Arts Festival in Zimbabwe. This comes on the 10th of June. Participants are drawn from special schools and disability resource units. We also host a few artists from the mainstream industry and talented nondisabled children participants from mainstream institutions. We seek to work with children with disabilities from other countries. We also seek participation of our children in children's arts festival elsewhere. Children from St. Giles Special School participated in the 5th edition of the World Children's Festival- (2015). We want more children with disabilities to access mainstream arts, sporting and education platforms. Art presents a subtle way of breaking barriers towards inclusive practices as we go. Our disability story shall never be the same as we promote early interactions and awareness of diverse social issues.
