Nigat lives with her parents, 2 brothers and 4 sisters. She has one deaf younger brother and a partially deaf elder sister. Nonetheless, her family strongly believes that education creates an opportunity for a better future in their children?s lives and should be pursued at any cost.
Upon admission, Nigat had hearing problems.
Nigat is a deaf child. There is no access to special needs education where she is residing. In addition, her family is in a difficult position to address her basic and educational material needs due to their poor economic status. The opening of Yesus Mena School for the deaf and the child?s enrollment in Holt?s sponsorship program helps her pursue her education.
