Our President and Secretary General had a presentation at Taf Africa Global, to see how best we can partner to make sure the #DeafSupportProgramme is implemented at St Johns School for the Deaf
In more recent times, the number of pupils at St John’s School for the Deaf has risen from about 150 in 2004 to nearer hundreds by 2018. This increase is not necessarily due to an actual increase in the deaf population during that period but is just as likely to be due to increased awareness of the problem and acceptance that deaf children can learn and benefit from attending school.
As a concerned organization and finding ways to improve the education system of The Gambia, deaf students should not be marginalized. Our organization have strategies and systems in place to counter the barrier between deaf students and technology and intend to enforce it as soon as we can.
