Without these changes, children with disability are often excluded from education.
Sina, who is 30 years old, has been deaf since she was five years old and was not able to continue school past Grade 9.
Although she is a talented mathematician, she has had limited opportunities because of her lack of education.
She was living at home helping her parents look after their livestock before she decided to take part in a ChildFund-supported project where she learned to become a tailor.
“I am so happy to be able to make clothes,” Sina says. “Sometimes I was very lonely at home, it made me very sad.”
Sina plans to use her new skills to develop a business, which will be more fulfilling and let her make the most of her talents. It will also given her greater independence.
Sina’s mother, Samorn, says she has noticed a major difference in her daughter since attending the training.
“I did not know how unhappy she was, but I can see the difference now,” Samorn says.
“She is so happy to have learned this skills and I am so happy to see her smiling.”
