Video- Divine Fellowship School for the Blind

We spent the afternoon with the students of the Divine Fellowship school for the blind.  The students learn to read Braille and learn skills for them to live normal productive lives.  They are incredibly loving and intuitive.  They move about by sound and don't need any other assistance to find their way around.  There are 145 kids that live at the school for 10 months out of the year.
We served lunch for the students.  After lunch each student took their plates and went outside to wash it.  We passed out cookies for their dessert.

The students love visitors and they love to sing and dance.  Even though they are blind they are very smart.  They can tell how tall a person is just by feeling and exploring the size of a person's hand.  They also play sports such as cricket.
