dc.description.abstractThis document deals with the biography of Hajiya Kaltume Bulama Gana, a Northern Nigerian Muslim woman who is educated in and practicing Islamic arts as a profession. She established a non-profit organization that educates children, including young women and girls affected by the Boko Haram insurgency so that they can become self-reliant and acquire new vocational skills. Written in 2019, this Kanuri Ajami text contains two parts: The first part deals with the life and works of Hajiya Kaltume Bulama Gana, and the second is an interview transcript with her. In the interview, she discusses her non-profit organization, her Herwa Heart of Art Initiative. This part provides details on how she established the organization and her successes and challenges. In the last part of the interview, she discusses how philanthropists and the general public can support her organization in order to use the arts to assist the orphans and children displaced and traumatized by Boko Haram in Borno state and beyond.en_US
