If I get a pen, I'll go to school...
- Three year old Faith
The next morning, when the eye patches came off, it was clear that Faith could see - and the first thing she wanted was a pen.
Helen is overjoyed to see Faith’s transformation. She’s now an independent little girl who is constantly playing with the other children in the village. Once, she used to hide her face in the folds of her aunt’s skirt, but now she scampers around with her friends, only needing to come to her aunt when she’s hungry.
When a girl can see, she can learn
Education for girls and women leads to possibility. But, in places like remote Kenya, education for blind girls and women isn’t feasible. Even at the young age of three, Faith understood this, and now with sight saved, her life can take shape in so many different ways.
