Thanks to her sponsors, Zainabu was one of the few children with hearing issues in the area who attended high school. Less than 2% of children without disabilities in the area attend high school so simply attending was a giant accomplishment. However, I’m excited to report that Zainabu has completed high school and is now employed as a teacher aid at the Marafa Special School!
In addition to serving the school children, she is now able to help support her mother who struggled for so long. She is working with the youngest children who are in the beginning stages of learning sign language. As someone with hearing issues herself, she is not only able to teach effectively, but also serves as a role model to these young children with hearing difficulties. Her sponsors not only impacted Zainabu’s life but the lives of her family and all those Zainabu teaches!
