To my avid blog readers, may I invite you to visit the website of Albay Association of the Deaf – The Signs of Change Learning Center? Here is their official website: http://signsofchangelearningcenter.weebly.com/index.html
Albay is a province south of Metro Manila. It is home to the famous Mayon Volcano. Their organization offers basic literacy using Filipino Sign Language, numeracy and life skills to Deaf Bicolanos particularly those from poor families who cannot afford center-based schooling. Their website also displays high quality handmade bags and necklace that are sold through online orders or in their center. Part of the sale will go to support the needs of the association.
Here is their welcome message:
The Signs of Change Learning Center operates under the Albay Association of the Deaf, Inc. We are dedicated to helping linguistically isolated and out-of-school deaf children gain an accessible education. At our learning center, classes are offered for free and the students are taught by experienced Deaf teachers in Filipino Sign Language and written English.
My friend from Philippine National Association of Interpreters for the Deaf (PNASLI) Ms. Vanessa Urbantke requested me to provide traffic to their site. What better way to do it than to blog about it. Please help their cause by supporting their programs, products and services. 🙂
