Teaching about Tolerance

We live in a world of diversity. Different races, religions and walks of life. Many people in our world are differently abled, and we found it vitally important to teach the learner that we must never treat people differently. Just because they may not look like you, walk like you or believe in different things than you, does not mean we must not respect them.

To emphasise this, we did an activity with the children where they were blindfolded and had to be led by their friends.Most of the learners exclaimed how difficult it was and elaborated on understanding the difficulties faced on a daily basis by differently abled people.

It was a fantastic, thought provoking lesson.
