Furthermore, to reinforce the moral integrity of students, they are required to sit in a wheelchair for one day per month, in order to experience the realities and difficulties of life of a person with disability and to have the desire and admiration to improve the situation of people with disabilities. As part of their learning process about people who are less fortunate than them, students forego their evening meals once per week in order to experience
hunger experienced by several hundred million children in the world, as this experience cannot be learned from a book.
In partnership with students, the Bamboo School has also developed a training facility for wheelchair-bound people to learn how to grow vegetables. This “Wheelchair Agriculture” model has, with assistance from the private sector, been introduced into special schools for students with disabilities. It is our endeavor that these students will be able to earn income while staying with their families in rural settings.
