2 deaf Pakistani children won a scholarship in the US and made history due to outstanding performance, according to Deaf Reach programme.
Usman, 16, hails from Landhi Karachi, Babar from Sindh’s Matiari district, and they are the only two children who have not let the disability stop their dreams.
Due to their outstanding academic performance, these two children became the first Pakistanis to receive this honour in an American School for the Deaf.
Both have earned a 5-year scholarship to the American School for the Deaf in the United States by performing outstandingly in the field of education.
Both of them belong to the low-income class, who dream of playing a role in the development of deaf people in higher education.
The two children, who received basic education under Pakistan’s Deaf Reach institution, are now studying in the United States, where they tell their story in sign language.
Deaf Reach is also offering a $ 200 monthly stipend to both students.
The first two Pakistanis to receive a scholarship to the American School for the Deaf want to serve the country and nation in the future.
