Why is Foster famous
In 1957, he went to Africa, where he encountered cultures so oppressive of deaf people that parents hid their deaf children or abandoned them altogether. Hearing missionaries told Foster that deaf children didn't even exist in Africa. But he found deaf children and created 31 schools for them. Before he finished, he built schools in Benin, Congo, Chad, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Cameroon.
