After realize that Deaf Students and in general Deaf persons are unable to communicate with their teachers in their respective schools, with financial and technical support from DPOD, NUDOR in good collaboration with RNUD (NUDOR Member Organization) organized Basic Sign Language training to the teacher at different model inclusive schools ( GS BUREMA, MURAMBA A Primary School, GS RUKINGU, GITEGA Primary School,…..) in order to improve communication skills between teacher and their teachers.
The training was 5 days starting from 25th up to 30th November 2018. After the training, the evaluation showed that teachers who trained have skills on Basic Sign Language.
One teacher said: “Before the training, we were unable to communicate with Deaf pupils but now we have few skills on Sign Language, that will help us to fulfill our obligations as good teachers, but this does not mean that we have full knowledge on SL, we need more continuously training so that we will stand for advocacy for the inclusion and respect of rights to Education for Deaf persons”
