Disability isn't Inability

Disability isn't inability and I believe that more and more as I continue to observe the students of the Alpha Centre (A special school for special children) in Dominica.

Last week, the staff and students of the school had an opening ceremony for their compost project. The school is one of the first to fully embrace organic agriculture and the compost heap will go along way in ensuring that the students are able to contribute to the school garden.

Although I had a small bit to do with the project, all praises has to go to Mr. Camille "Siwattu" Leblanc who has tirelessy worked with the students. He mentioned that he has gained alot of strength through their unending enthusiasm.

The project was funded by UNESCO through the local Dominican Commission with support from the Division of Agriculture and Youth Development Division.
