Lizzie Cameron in Musoma

Lizzie Cameron is a 26-year old graphic designer from Edinburgh, Scotland, and she is in Musoma, Tanzania. While there she will be working with local disabled children and teenagers.

About the organization

While she is in Tanzania, Lizzie will spend her time working with the Musoma Engineering Project. The project is based in the town of Musoma and is geared towards providing much needed education for disabled children of the region. Without a transport system, children have to walk miles to reach a school, and so the project offers a more localized teaching for those who can't make the lengthy journey.

Back home in Britain Lizzie prepares to return to Tanzania. But before she heads back out to Africa she visits London to take part in a charity walk that raises money for the hospital.

Lizzie shows how the Lake Victoria Disability Center's new program is helping two disabled children. Parents often do not have the resources or education to look after children with disability so the ceter offers a helping hand.

Lizzie spends some time watching the children play. They have made the most of what's around them, turning plastic bags into footballs and tree bark and toothpaste boxes into cars.
