It’s through communication, that we are able to learn and gain knowledge and to be aware of what is going on in the world around us. With Sign Language, we can have access to that.

Our Family Signing in the Home project allows for Deaf children to learn sign language in their own home, with their families, creating a more inclusive environment for everyone.
