Abstract

During my university trip to South Africa I visit a black township called Lingehlile. There I examined the life situation and education for children and youth with mentally disabilities. I was interested in knowing more about what basic condition they have, period of school and what kind of support they get outside the school. The subjects that I have handled are a school for all, support for the person with mentally disabilities and their family, the opinion of the society, education and life after school. I got my result by two interviews. One was with the principal of a school for handicapped children and the other one was with a teacher at that school. Also I have visit a school for handicapped in Cape Town. In Sweden we are talking about a school for all were everybody are welcomed irrespective of handicap. We have laws that stand behind people with mentally disabilities and they can get support and service. With this report I would like to throw light on the situation in another country, in this case South Africa. My investigation showed that they are struggling for a better society for the people with mentally disabilities but they have not come as far as Sweden. This is because of the bad economy and the government. During the trip I met a lot of people that are fighting for better conditions and a rise are slowly but sure on its way.
