Goma, DR Congo. A few years ago, Amina’s mother couldn’t afford a “normal“ school for her only daughter. So she took her to a school for deaf children even though Amina could hear perfectly well. That day Amina’s life changed forever. Amina learned the sign language and a few years later, in 2018, she started to coach Goma’s first basketball team of deaf people. They train everyday. Very hard. And they dream big. They wish to participate in international competitions. For this group of young people, basketball is an escape route from the “noise” of the city of Goma, the third largest city in DR Congo.
