25 May is the day African countries celebrate Africa day. Alaso Academy took an initiative to conduct a workshop on Sign language and Disability awareness in Bulawayo. With the support of the West Zimbabwe Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, they managed to train more that 120 people who attended the workshop.

Inclusivity is key in service delivery to every Zimbabwean citizen. Learning a language like Sign language is no longer a luxury but a necessity as this is the only language our deaf friends, relatives and loved ones understand. It is everyone’s constitutional right to read the bible in their own languages, to receive every and any service they need in a language they understand and Sign language is this language.

West Zimbabwe Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist church partnered with Alaso Academy and provided the venue.

The first step towards inclusive is to learn the language and have an appreciation of disability.

As Alaso Academy, we call upon everyone to, Aspire to Learn, Advance and Seize every Opportunity.
