Photo and caption by Mark Wessels

In the dusty road, wearing a beautiful white dress stands a timid little albino girl. Clutching hat and paper she remains quietly still. Afternoon light seeps through trees making her glow angelically. Visually impaired she lives in Malingunde Village attending school at the Special Needs Education Resource Centre along with other such challenged Malawian children.

Location: Special Needs Education Resource Centre, Malingunde Village, Malawi, Africa
