Transforming education in Ghana

Nine year-old Lucy was born with a disability. The first eight years of her life were spent at home, unable to walk. Thanks to a VSO volunteer's work with partners as part of the TENI programme funded by Comic Relief, she now goes to school and actively participates in the classroom.
