Enterprising Palestinian blind teacher

Many able-bodied Kenyans would choose not to engage in productive activities siting lack of enough funds, time, energy, or past failures.  Perhaps, they could learn a lesson of from Mahmoud Taha, a 61-year-old visually-impaired Palestinian teacher, who  produces beautiful pieces of furniture, mainly made of bamboo, at his  workshop in Al-Ala'iya school for visually-impaired children in the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Taha, who was injured in an Israeli bomb explosion when he was nine years old, teaches and trains blind children skills in carpentry and bamboo industry at the school.  (Text: Stephen Mburu. Photos/Xinhua)
