Faiza is 9 but looks much younger. She triumphed over TB at a very young age but constant poor nutrition and neglect left her underdeveloped, sickly and nonverbal. Her mother is mentally ill and social services intervened. Faiza has been at Baobab 3 years and is now a different child. She talks, attends preschool and loves her siblings dearly. Although not academically inclined she has a terrific sense of humor and helps her younger siblings to behave.
