MARIAMA IS 10 YEARS OLD AND

HAS MANY DREAMS FOR THE

FUTURE.

BUT A YEE YEAR AGO, SHE HAD

NO HOPE AT ALL.

SHE WAS BORN DEAF, AND HER

MOTHER COULDN'T TAKE CARE OF

HERE AND LEFT HER WITH HER

GRANDMOTHER.

MIRAAMI ALSO CRIED.

AND I PAID A LOT OF MONEY

FOR A HEARING SCHOOL, AND

SHE DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING.

IT WAS HARD IN THE

REGULAR SCHOOL.

IT MADE ME VERY SAD.

Terry: THEN HER

GRANDMOTHER HEARD ABOUT A

SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF

SPONSORED BY ORPHANS PROMISE,

SHE ENROLLED MIRIAMA

IMMEDIATELY.

Terry: SHE HAS ONLY

BEEN AT THIS SCHOOL FOR A

YEAR.

BUT SHE IS EXCELLING

BEAUTIFULLY.

IN FACT, THIS IS THE ONLY

SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF IN ALL

OF SENEGAL.

SINCE SHE HAS BEEN COMING

HERE, SHE IS GETTING A GREAT

EDUCATION AND IS LEARNING

SKILLS THAT WILL CHANGE HER

LIFE FOREVER.

MIRIAMA'S TEACHER SAYS SHE

CAN'T BELIEVE HOW FAR SHE

HAS COME IN SUCH A SHORT

TIME.

SHE IS A GREAT GIRL.

I KNOW SHE WILL BE VERY

SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE.

SHE IS A GOOD GIRL AND

STUDIES HARD.

Terry: BECAUSE OF THIS

SCHOOL AND THE SUPPORT OF

"ORPHANS' PROMISE", MIRIAMA

CAN GROW UP WITH SKILLS SHE

NEVER KNEW SHE HAD, AND SHE

CAN HOLD ON TO A GREAT

DREAM.

I WANT TO ENROLL IN A

BEAUTY PAGEANT WHEN I GROW

UP, AND BECOME MS. SENEGAL.

I REALLY LOVE MY SCHOOL

HERE.

THANK YOU "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP.
