Qualified schooling and training is one of the most important things we can give children and young people for their future. Even more so if they have a handicap.
But what about if there is no access to the appropriate funding? What are the prospects for a life in dignity and respect? The founder of taki mundo, Astrid von Reding, asked herself exactly these questions during her stay in Mexico in 2006. On site in Michoacàn, one of the poorest states in Mexico, she experienced the sad existence of many deaf and hearing impaired young people up close: isolated, as “stupid” »Classified, stressful for families.
Shocking images that Astrid von Reding will never forget. Her decision was made: that should and had to change.
