Send Ashu to school

A microproject by Reach Out NGO
Send Ashu to school

Summary

A four year old deaf girl was identified by chance during a mobile clinic consultation in the remote village of Talangye, in Manyu Division. Disability issues are strange to the culture of the village and the nearest school for the deaf is 230KM away. She has a right to education and to communicate, she is also at risk of under developing if she does not learn to write and sign language.

Challenge

The case of Ashu was just known one week ago, when her mother came to consult to Reach Out's mobile clinic. She needs to be examined by a specialized paediatrician to understand the scope of her disability and the best options. Talagaye is a very rural village in a conflict zone, where no children goes to school due to the on-going civil war.

Solution

The project will place Ashu in a special education school in Buea. We can get her into a special school before the end of November. She will learn sign language and normal primary school curricula. Ashu will also escape a conflict area with constant confrontations between the government's army and Non-state-armed groups.

Long-Term Impact

We are aware that such a project might not be sustainable over time, Ashu has to get an education through all her young life, not only this year. Her Mother, Lucia, is a business woman and will be supported to grow her business and be able to pay for Ashu's education in the future. She is also willing to learn sign language herself. Even in the worst case, if she could not go to school next year, a child will have learned how to communicate with the world.That's unvaluable
