Another of our truly inspiring partners, Edna Adan, recently published a book titled A Woman of Firsts about her remarkable life of firsts. Among other accomplishments, she’s founded a Hospital and a University in her native Somaliland—but it’s her selfless compassion for others that led CEO Kate Grant to call her “the Muslim Mother Theresa.” Hear from her in this recent podcast interview with TeachPitch. (If you don’t have time for the whole interview, you may want to skip ahead to 42:16 to 47:00, where she discusses fistula.)

Here’s an article Kate Grant wrote about Edna for the Huffington Post a few years ago.
