Aged 13, Robson felt useless...

As a young child he was completely healthy, but one day he started to develop physical problems. The children at his school in Kasese District, Uganda, began to tease him because he was different – he couldn’t walk and run around like the rest of them anymore. In the end, the school was too far away for Robson to walk to with his weakened muscles, so he just stopped going.


Robson, who has muscular dystrophy, now attends RAPCD ’s primary school. BMS World Mission music therapist Bethan Shrubsole met Robson in 2014, whilst training RAPCD’s teachers in music, art and other creative techniques. Then 14, he was enrolled in primary 4 (year 5 in the UK). Robson told her that he feels happy among his new friends.

 

His teacher, Masereka Jockim (pictured), believes that the creative therapy techniques Bethan has taught him will help pupils like Robson, who struggle with confidence. He thinks it will help his teaching, too.
