The film “Body and Soul” is especially suitable for adults and young people from the age of 14 as well as for students in upper secondary education in areas such as character building and social skills (and in similar subjects dealing with personality development), ethics, religion, civics, history, geography and economics. The film, with its real characters Victória, Mariana and Vasco, very deeply touches adolescent and adult viewers and gives an impressive testimony about people with disabilities in Mozambique who for the most part manage their lives by themselves.
This game is based on the ‘World Game’ from the book ‘Change you view – A toolkit for global learning’ by Dr. Franz Halbartschlager.

A psychosocial approach promoting the inclusion of persons with disabilities.
Enormous progress has been made to treat cataract, the leading cause of blindness in developing countries. However, Africa already faces the next challenges: diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degen- eration and glaucoma present the main emerging diseases with preva- lence rates comparable to anywhere in the world. Furthermore, lens complications and retinal detachments can accompany an unsuccessful cataract surgery. These developments have already been observed in China, India and the Middle Eastern countries. So far, Africa has given low priority to retinal diseases and is not prepared for the procedures and treatments. However, with the right training and equipment, these challenges can be tackled successfully.
