The Fundamentals of Learning

Throughout the world, there are places where access to education is not a right, but a privilege. A school in Tanzania is trying to change that. Faraja Primary School is one of only two schools in Tanzania that cater to physically disabled students. In a country with a population of 50 million and persistent discrimination against disabled people, how much can one school do? And what does an education mean when you have to fight for the right to it?

Meet James - a physically disabled Maasai boy who is struggling to fit in at the school with the other kids - and meet Laban Kileo, the man who has brought them all together.
