Sama Staff Learns Sign Language

Since 6 December 2013, Nagarathna, a young sign language trainer from Cheshire Livelihood Resource Centre is in Sama Foundation every Friday to teach Sama’s staff how to communicate with deaf and dumb people. Nagarathna also works as an assistant counsellor at Cheshire and in 5 sessions plans to teach sign language to Sama staff. “They’ll learn at least 100 sign language words and this will help them in their basic communication with deaf and dumb people,” she said. Sama staff expects that the training will help them in communicating better with deaf and dumb children in bridge education centres, psychosocial care program and with other members with disability in thrift and credit societies across Karnataka. All staff will also very soon learn Braille language. Parents of children with disability interested in learning sign language and Braille can contact Sama Foundation or Chesire.
