Raruf

Raruf lives in the Upper West region of Ghana, and he was born with a disability in his leg. After spending a few years with his family in Accra, Raruf’s father sent him home to his grandfather who enrolled him at Lambussie DA Primary School.

Settling in a new school and making friends is not easy in normal times, but in Raruf’s case, his legs and his difficulty to walk set him apart from the other children. “When I first arrived at school, the boys chased me away", he says. "They called me a 'sickler', they told me that I could not play with them. It made me feel sad. I used to say: ‘let me join you – you will see, God will help me’”.
