Jigiya, Our New Mali Friends


portrait 2- Kassim Dembélé
Birth Date:  1971
Birth place: Yangasso (San)

My father was an environmental agent and my mother is a nurse. I walked normally up to 10. I was sent to school when I was 7. I felt sick at 10 when I was in the third form in primary school. Then my studies stopped at that very moment because of my disability. I started my commerce as a retailer when I grew up. I am the first child of my parents.

My advice to people is not to discriminate people with disabilities but they must be kind and lovely with them to support them as much as possible. And those who live with disabilities must not be ashamed with it but they must join together.
