"I really like school. I want to be a bank manager when I grow up. I like georgraphy, arithmetic and science, but my favourite subject is history, because I like to talk to my father about what I have learned." Mafoune, pictured here with her teacher Marie Simone, is a visually impaired student who looks forward to going #backtoschool in Mali! Thanks to our #inclusiveeducation programme with USAID Mali, she's empowered to learn with her peers. 📷 Javier Acebal

Eight-year-old Mohammed's mum Zainab has high hopes for her son. He has a physical disability, which in countries like Sierra Leone can mean it's harder to access education; lack of transport and accessible learning tools are both factors. But since starting school through Sightsavers' inclusive education programme with the European Commission, Mohammed's proving that disability does not mean inability. Zainab told us: “If he isn’t educated he will be at home and will not be able to do anything, I will be struggling. But now he will be able to work in an office, and maybe get a good position – he can do something for himself with his brain.” 📷 Michael Duff
