RAPCD schools have been able to help blind and deaf children who would otherwise be excluded from society and seen as having no use.
In 2016 RAPCD opened an integrated secondary school specialising in teaching blind, deaf or disabled children. Jeremiah and Godfrey were among the first pupils, having previously both been head boys at the primary school. Since then they have taken their final exams. Jeremiah gained one of highest marks in the country (so much for being useless!!). They have both moved on to higher education. Jeremiah plays the keyboard, a skill learnt at the RAPCD schools. He has gained national recognition and earns a living playing at events such as weddings. In 2020 he was married himself amidst great rejoicing, the first RAPCD pupil to get married and a dream unimaginable in 2009. Godfrey’s dream is to become a teacher. He has no doubt been influenced by two blind teachers - a wonderful man who in the pioneering days of RAPCD school, gave the last years of his life to teach Braille to the primary pupils, and a young blind teacher who now teaches computer studies at the secondary school. MMN, in partnership with Accomplish, has bought these schools Braille books and equipment which are well used and much appreciated by all the blind pupils, including Godfrey’s sister, Solenge, who is also blind and now doing well at the primary school.
