From: khalid dahab | Subject: Unity College Testimonial
In November 2006, we moved to South Africa from our country, The Sudan, to join the Pan African Parliament. We had no idea what it would be like to live and work in SA. We were particularly worried about the education of our children, especially Maya, who has Down Syndrome. She was 6 years old at the time. We found a kindergarten for special needs children for her, The Maple Tree, where she spent a year.
Then Unity was recommended to us by The Maple Tree. So, she joined in January 2008. We found everything that we were looking for: Education, therapy, care and development. Maya can now read and write, speak legibly and has developed so much: all because of what she got at Unity. Unity means the world to Maya, and to everyone in our family. It has become part of our lives.
In fact, about four and a half years ago, I resigned my post the Pan African Parliament and we were faced with the choice of going back to Sudan. But because of Maya and the education and care that she got, and still gets, at Unity, we decided to stay and apply for Permanent Residence. Thankfully, we were granted residence and we are so happy that she can, hopefully, continue with Unity.
