MetadataShow full item record
In old time people with visual impairments have been excluded from the society, they did not have the right to enjoy the same rights as other e.g. education. Then with the passage of time, this discrimination was noticed, and different laws were made and implemented for the rights of impaired people. A high number of countries signed the petition to implement that law in their countries. In this research two countries from the global south, Pakistan and Mozambique have been chosen to investigate the problems experienced by the Visually impaired students. The research has been conducted through the qualitative methodology and deep down the research, semistructured interview technique was used to answer the research question. The research explored that both countries have different education system for their visually impaired schools e.g. Mozambique follows Inclusive education system and Pakistan follow separate schools for impaired students. Eight interviews were conducted in both countries and the conclusion shows that in Pakistan, students with visual impairments have to experience less problem than Mozambique.
