Julius Nganji is an expert in information technology at the University of Hull in the UK,and an award winner for his work in promoting ICTs in schools in Cameroon. Along with a Nigerian partner, he’s up to another challenge. They are carrying out a study on disability awareness in schools in Cameroon and Nigeria. “Because our society has not been equipped with this awareness, the tendency has been to exclude disabled people,” he says. “Consequently, disabled people have ‘special’ schools and ‘difficult’ cases would not normally study in the mainstream schools. They are also being left out of jobs and places in mainstream institutions.” In this interview he explains the motive and the expected outcome.
