Government educational institutions, particularly in the villages,are extremely poor in infrastructure and instruction. Facilities for students with disability are virtually non-existent.Schools buses only exist for the privileged in private schools. Special education reaches only 1% of those with mental disability.
These deficiencies add to the burden of students who already find their disability an impediment to success in learning. This is particularly true for female students who struggle with gender discrimination as well as disability.
In order to encourage the students with disability in their educational pursuits, OEI has several programs for students with disabilities. These include:
- Tutoring for high school, college and university students
- Scholarships to pay school fees and purchase books
- Hostel (dorm) facilities for rural students attending urban colleges.
