  1. Rubaba was given a great gift! Perhaps she could consider using her talent making cards and selling them.

    People could buy her handmade cards to give to their friends and family

    celebrating holidays like Ramadan, Nowruz , Eid al Fitr , Eid al Adha. The income she would receive could go to art supplies and paying a tutor to teach her reading and writing a few hours every day at her home. Or even towards a wheel chair ! She could get outdoors more to enjoy nature and meet children her own age. I wish her the very best.
