This project provides 3000 pupils sign language skills which they will, over time transfer to other youths in Nigeria for the inclusion of hearing and speech impaired people. We will do this through
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
We are addressing isolation, total exclusion and infringement of people’s Human Rights of those who cannot hear and speak. Unlike those with visual and limb impairments, respectively, they can hardly work in offices because nobody understands them and they cannot interact with the public. We want to eradicate Sign Language Illiteracy in the six geopolitical Zones of Nigeria in order to include the hearing impaired who are totally excluded.
How will this project solve this problem?
Sign Language Clubs targeting 500 pupils in each of six geopolitical zones will be made. Experts from churches will be hired to teach. We will provide sign language materials and books. Each student will them become a trainer to other Clubs.
Potential Long Term Impact
Hearing impairment will no longer be a handicap as a generation will all be sign language literates. Those with it become useful members of the society no longer isolated/ excluded. For now they lack communication, a vital weapon for survival.
