Redressing the Balance

NGORA school for the deaf

Following the closure of schools because of the pandemic, Ngora school opened its gates again to welcome the return of the students.

Here are Mary and Joan together with the deputy head of this residential school, pleased to be back. Thanks to the kind sponsors they have been able to have tests and receive the necessary PPE in order to return and meet with their friends and teachers again.

Isaac and Aloysius have also returned to Ngora school. Here they are learning life skills in order to be able to support themselves and their families. Previous attempts to join their peers in a mainstream school have failed and so now at the ages of 15 and 17 years old they have been accepted at the school, have been taught basic American Sign Language (ASL) and learnt tailoring and carpentry.

Their teachers have been astounded at how quickly they have learnt these new skills and how well they are performing.
