Leonard Cheshire Disability - Developing Lives

UK charity Leonard Cheshire Disability is showcasing a fascinating photography exhibition of people with disabilities engaging in educational and employment projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Sierra Leone. The exhibition gives an insight into the charity’s pioneering international work to ensure disabled children go to school; that disabled adults are supported into work; and disabled young people can campaign for their full inclusion in society.

Each photo has a powerful story to tell of hope, struggle, innovation, independence and achievement, in an exhibition that will move and uplift you. The images are taken by up-and-coming photographer Hamish Roberts who is profoundly deaf, and established photographer Jenny Matthews who is internationally renowned for her work.

Leonard Cheshire Disability supports 12,000 disabled people in Africa and Asia through its partners in the Cheshire Global Alliance, a network of over 200 independently managed Cheshire organisations in over 50 countries. The charity is committed through its transformational programmes to achieving inclusive education and livelihood opportunities for a further 100,000 people over the next five years.
