In Neema Wants to Learn, a girl with learning disabilities shares how she likes to learn all day long. She introduces you to Mama Mdemu and her friend Joseph. Delightful photographs capture her interactions and activities as her day in an orphanage in Tanzania progresses.
Neema tricks Joseph, helps Mama Mdemu and helps care for the younger children. It's great fun to discover her favorite games and a fun coconut song she sings.
Neema inspires us to learn throughout our day as we participate in our daily activities even if learning something new is difficult.
By sharing Neema's story we celebrate Neema's many strengths and abilities. Neema has learning disabilities.
