I may not be able to change the world all by myself, but I can change the world of one person: with one person at a time, I can come close to changing the entire world. This is the mantra of Save the Deaf and Endangered Languages Initiative (S-DELI.)

Gloria Gabriel 15, is one of the smartest and most beautiful student at the School for the Deaf, Pasali, Kuje Abuja. Like many of her deaf colleagues, she also has challenges with her sight. Research has shown that most deaf people suffer visual impairments more than the hearing population #LifeIsNotFair. Gloria has a pair of reading glasses now, alongside many of her schoolmates and teachers too, courtesy of S-DELI.

Our (S-DELI members) joy knew no bounds when we saw how much improvement these little efforts of ours have made in their lives. Gloria can see and read better now…
