As Christians in a Muslim dominated region, the Mammon family found educating their children a major challenge. At the only local school they were forced to recite the Quran and learned nothing of reading or writing or mathematics. For this reason the children stopped going to school until an aunt, a student at CFI came home for holiday and told their parents about CFI Children’s home and persuaded them to allow her to bring them here.
