Blind Indian Albino Boys

25 September 2013

Blinde Albino-Schüler stehen in Westbengalen, Indien, in der Vivekananda-Missionsschule, einem Internat für Blinde, in einem Schlafsaal. In der Schule lernen die blinden Kinder aus unterprivilegierten Schichten, die sonst vielleicht hätten betteln müssen, überlebenswichtige Fähigkeiten.

Blind albino students stand in a dorm at the Vivekananda Mission School, a boarding school for the blind. The school teaches vital skills to blind children from underprivileged backgrounds, who might otherwise have to beg for a living.
