The Paralympic Games are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change the way society views disability. And THE SPORAH SHOW wanted to hear from Tanzania sporting heroes looking at attitudes toward disabled people in Tanzania.

The London 2012 Paralympic Games have been the most popular ever, with record ticket sales and millions more watching on TV. The best disabled sportspeople from all around the world have lit up Britain's capital city on their quest for Paralympic glory.
But many countries have had little or no coverage of the games. Do people outside the UK really care about the Paralympics? And have the London Paralympics changed your attitudes towards the disabled?
