From Herding Goats to Lab Technician
Adam Jumanne Shabani’s story is a testament to resilience and transformation. At 25, Adam faced a world of challenges. Orphaned, having lost both his parents and managing a physical disability, he spent his early years in Dodoma, Tanzania, herding goats and cows and yearning for the education his peers were receiving
Through Foundation of Light’s Buraq Endowment scholarship Adam embarked on vocational training in science and laboratory technology. The hands-on training introduced him to a universe of scientific principles and laboratory techniques. He learned to navigate complex equipment, design experiments, and analyze data with precision.
These skills have not only paved a path for Adam’s career but he now sees a future filled with promise, equipped with the expertise to contribute meaningfully to his family and the community. He is a pillar of support and inspiration for those around him.
