Robert Davison lost his hearing when he had malaria. He lives with his seven brothers and sisters in rural Chimutu, which is also where he goes to school. His favorite subject is English. 14-year-old Robert likes football and loves to paint. He also enjoys talking to other people, even though his ability to speak is limited due to his hearing loss. Robert has made a huge improvement at school since he got his hearing aids. When he grows up, he wants to be an entrepreneur.
