All I can remember is being in the house alone when my parents went to work. They didn't want me outside the house and locked me in when they went out. I was nine years old when I became deaf and it was really difficult. I had been in school and was a normal child until this point. Fortunately, my father's friend told him to stop keeping me inside the house and try and find a school for me. They searched for a deaf school and finally found one. When I finished school I really wanted to learn to sew and my father said he would help towards it. I am really glad he did, as it meant that when Neema was advertising for a qualified tailor I was able to apply for the job...

This is a large bag great for carrying everything for a day out at the beach, overnight/weekend breaks, holidays, or a day out with the family!
It is made from khaki canvas decorated with two black screen printed images that reflect our home in Tanzania. You can adjust the size of the bag for convenience by using the poppers on the side. It has a front outside pocket, fastens with a black zip at the top and and is lined with black cotton canvas. The straps are made of wide soft brown faux leather. The back of the bag is plain khaki.
