Akili Dada Fellow, Gloria Njoki, works with children to improve their literacy and access to life skills. We met with one of Gloria’s students, Agnes, who lives a little outside of Meru. Agnes was born deaf and attends St. Luke’s School for the deaf, one of the schools that Gloria partners with. Agnes’ parents along with one of her teachers testified about the impact Gloria’s initiative has had on Agnes’ self-esteem and on their family.  We continue to celebrate Gloria for working to empower young deaf people in Embu County.

Learn more about Gloria’s project in this video and and on her website.
