There are not many inclusive schools for children with a hearing impairment in Tanzania, so the students travel long distances to get here. They cannot travel back and forth each day, so they need dormitories at the school to be able to attend classes. The vice-minister promised they’d get the dormitories and when I arrived to the school, indeed, the new buildings were almost finished.

Two months later I was back in Jordan and sent Makmende my portfolio. Without mentioning the crazy story of how I got to know about them. They hired me to do an assignment in Jordan which was my first project with a company from outside my country. This was the start of a longer working relationship with Makmende that eventually lead me to going to Amsterdam to work at the Makmende headquarters.
