Mozambique: Education Barriers for Children with Albinism

Improve Security: Provide Accommodation in Schools

Children with albinism face insecurity and significant obstacles to accessing quality education in the Tete province of Mozambique, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. The report, “‘From Cradle to Grave’: Discrimination and Barriers to Education for Persons with Albinism in Tete Province, Mozambique” is in the form of a special web feature with video and photos.

Human Rights Watch found children living with albinism in the central Mozambican province of Tete to be widely discriminated against, stigmatized, and often rejected at school in the community, and, at times, by their own families. They struggle to overcome barriers such as insecurity, bullying, and lack of reasonable adjustments in the classroom, which violates their right to education.

Although the Mozambique government has taken important steps to better protect the rights of children with albinism, it needs to do more to ensure equal access to education~© 2019 Human Rights Watch
