About Elizabeth

Age: 8 years

School: Nursery School Meru Primary School

Story: Elizabeth grew up with her grandmother in Singida. She was born deaf and dumb. Due to that she never went to school until she came to Gate Way Rehabilitation Center, when she was 8 years old. At home in Singida she had to take care of their cattle. In 2023 a woman decided to take care of her and brought her to Arusha. This woman contacted AVUREFA for help. Since then Elizabeth stays with us and goes to nursery school at Meru Primary School with Norah and Nuru. There she learns sign language. So we are looking forward to be able to communicate with her well soon.
