Susan's Footprint in Kano

Susan works as a teacher trainer with the State Universal Education Board in Kano. One of her projects is the "Sustainable Classroom" where she trains teachers is making innovative learning resources from locally available materials. We saw one of her classrooms with ABCs and numbers painted beautifully on the walls. She also made a small shop where students learn maths through trading!

She is also training local women in providing basic first aid. She takes care of the local youth called "Almajharees" who have been sent away from their homes by giving them house work. We were overwhelmed to see the warmth, care and protection they showed towards Susan!

All the children in the area know and love Susan. You can hear them shouting "Susaaan" from a mile away!
