We closed the preschool on December 7th and we started again today January 11th! That’s a long time for a young child learning how to sign to be in an environment where almost no sign is used. Deaf children can feel very lonely and isolated. Then they get accused of being “harsh” when they show their frustration at being misunderstood or unable to express themselves. This is why we include the family in the activities at Nzeve. Young children learn to sign but they need to have someone to sign with. Mothers bring their children to Nzeve and most of them stay to learn communication skills themselves.
We are looking forward to a good year at Nzeve! We have lots to do and despite the challenges we face every day in Zimbabwe, we are determined to make a difference in the lives of young deaf children, youth and their families!
