Ryusei Ouchi, a blind person, practices skateboarding at a skatepark in Tokorozawa, north of Tokyo, Japan, on December 13, 2019. Ouchi was born with perfect vision. His vision then declined since the age of seven and is now almost completely blind.

Ouchi needed some time to get used to the skatepark layout. But after having a pretty good picture, he can do more tricks.

Skateboarding will appear as a new sport at the Tokyo Olympics next year, but not at the Paralympics. Ouchi also hopes someday skateboarding will also be contested at the Paralympics.

These five blind people are aware of their shortcomings. But the situation did not make them stop fighting, sharing, and educating others.

Vision does not belong to Marilyn Lievani, Lindawati Agustin Kwa, Ricky Darmawan, Eti Saragih, and Sri Melati. But the enthusiasm of these five blind people to "light the way" of people with multiple disabilities really amazes.

The five are managers and lecturers at the Dwituna Harapan Baru Education Foundation. This small school is located in a modest house painted in light blue on Jalan KL Yos Sudarso No. 84C, Neighborhood XI, Glugur City, West Medan, Medan, North Sumatra.

The school building is between a row of terraced tenements in the hallway. There is a white-framed signboard that reads the name of the foundation complete with administrative numbers and addresses, just above the door of the house, which indicates the place is an educational institution. The shoe rack box placed outside also shows many who came there.

This school specifically educates children with Multiple Disability with Visual Impairment (MDVI), those who have visual impairments accompanied by other obstacles, both hearing, intellectual, physical, emotional, and so on. In short, the students have multiple disabilities.

"So in ordinary schools or in special schools he is not accepted but in Harapan Baru we try to provide proper education for them," Marilyn said.
