- A disabled boy from Port Elizabeth is finally realising his dream of going to school
- The 13-year-old child lives with a disability called cerebral palsy
- The boy’s mother has been attempting to enrol her son into a school since 2011
13-year-old Lukhanyo Dobo is filled with excitement as he will soon be attending school for the first time in his life.
Lukhanyo lives with a condition called cerebral palsy, which affects the muscles and nerves in one’s body.
The 13-year-old boy has to use a wheelchair to get around, but this doesn’t stop him from dreaming big.
Lukhanyo lives with his mother in an informal settlement in Port Elizabeth.
According to eNCA, Lukhanyo’s mother has been trying to help her son achieve his dream of going to school since 2011.
Now, with the help of a charity organisation, Lukhanyo is able to go and learn in a classroom and stimulate his mind.
Even though things can sometimes get tough for Lukhanyo, Briefly.co.za found out that the 13-year-old is adamant that nothing will stop him from becoming a police officer.
Lukhanyo knows that the first step to becoming a ‘man in blue’ is getting an education, and so this exciting goal is clearer, now that he can go to school.
