Send Thelma to school
A six year old deaf girl was identified by chance during a check-up interview on her mother's economic progress under the Keep a Girl Alive program. Thelma is not going to school nor learning sign language, since the issue is very strange to the conditions of the village and very expensive to adequately address in Cameroon too. She has a right to education and to communicate, she is also at risk of under developing her thinking abilities if she does not learn to write and sign language soon. project reportread updates from the field
