Mumbai teacher who fights odds to teach the deaf
October 6, 2017
With no financial support, 23-year-old Shabina in Mumbai has been teaching deaf students, kids and adults, for about four years.
Shabina said she decided to start this initiative as she has four elder brothers, all of whom are deaf.
She has taught over 80 students so far. Shabina did her B.Ed. in teaching the hearing impaired from Pune, and a course in sign language from Mumbai.
She teaches for free as most of the students are poor. Her wish is to see her students get decent jobs and succeed in life. She helps students who left studies midway to do their SSC or HSC. She gets them admissions in private schools or colleges so they can give their exams.
