“This is the chair that brought me here – this is the chair that brought my life back”. I met the young man who said this in Arusha. Abdullah Munish, Motivation’s Technical Coordinator in Tanzania was himself in a car accident, 16 years ago. He made his current chair as a final-year college project while on a Motivation and College partnered course. An INSPIRATION.
On a house visit I met Julius, Judiathi and two of their four children. The youngest is 9 years old - Judiathi was pregnant at time of the car accident. With a spinal neck injury Julius cannot help himself. Judiathi is the main breadwinner; making bread, doing small sewing jobs, and buying and preparing vegetables for resale. No government support. No insurances. Their plight is desperate, although the children do go to school and like it and have aspirations of their own.
