Adam Hoolahan, who has been totally blind since birth, is studying on the BA (Hons) Cultural Studies course at Wirral Met College. After his studies, he plans on travelling to Nilakottai in India to work as a volunteer in Karunai-DHAN Nursery and Primary School, which caters for children aged between three and ten years old

Adam will travel early next year and serve twelve months as a volunteer at the school, teaching English, whilst also working within the role of a general classroom assistant. Adam commented, “I am seriously considering embarking on a career teaching English as a foreign language either in the U.K or abroad, and saw this as an excellent opportunity for me to gain some first-hand experience which I believe will stand me in good stead on my return to the U.K to embark on a training course. I do have a second reason for wishing to undergo this project, which is much more personal to me. As a disabled individual I consider myself fortunate on the whole in terms of opportunities which I have been provided with. At the time I felt, and still do feel an overwhelming desire to somehow be of help to disabled people in a society in which living as a disabled person bares significant challenges.”
