Progress in Advocacy field

We want to share the progress made in our efforts to implement the New Policy in Education which is in favour of Inclusive Education. We have proposed to the Federal Ministry of Education for Sign Language Clubs to be formed in Primary and secondary schools to help in learning sign language by non- hearing impaired children. The Hon Minister is in favour of it and we are waiting for his final action on it. Part of the Machines for the water business has been paid for and we are hopeful that the machines would be fixed before Christmas and business start in January 2008. We had successful sales of our products in Shell's compound in early September and have gotten the invitation for Christmas sales on December 18th 2007. Our students and beneficieries are hopeful of job come January when the Water business starts. We need money to complete what remains and to take off.
