Based on a yearlong ethnographic study, this book describes the
daily life and work of the Irente Rainbow School, a special
education school for students with developmental disabilities in
Lushoto, Tanzania. It examines the use of local context, community
funds of knowledge, culturally relevant pedagogy, and community
support to teach students with disabilities important life skills,
independence, self-advocacy and to fight for their human rights.
This book offers several lessons for different audiences; it is a
primer on disability and education in a rural African town, an
alternative model for non-governmental agencies to consider in
designing community-based and community-engaged programs, and a
story about an exceptional group of teachers, students and families
who took action to provide an education and a realization of rights
for children with disabilities. "
