Mariama Kadri iLast year, in 2018, Mariama was suffering from malaria during the first part of training. Our nurse, Rabi, provided treatment and soon we knew she was feeling better when her commanding voice was ringing out during training sessions.
She is a Wodaabe from Tedbouk who is married to the chief of her community. (Although many think she is the real chief) Her opinion is highly regarded and she does not shy from expressing it. She is a skilled birth attendant and teacher, and is particularly good at inventing training scenarios.
