Understanding the importance of providing access to early education for the Deaf to enable their prosperity, we launched ISH Shiksha in June 2021. As a part of the pilot test, we provided Online Courses in Zumba and Basic Indian Sign Language. We have successfully completed 7 batches of the ISL Courses.
We intend to expand the courses to cover the subjects that would be of interest to the Deaf Community and which would enable them to lead an independent life.
ISH Shiksha aims to educate the Deaf Community and build a bridge between the Hearing and Deaf Communities. Many schools in India follow the practise of oralism and this hinders the ability of Deaf People to lead an independent life and affects their employment opportunities thus impacting their standard way of living. The pandemic and subsequent lockdown has made it more difficult for Deaf people to socialise and share their knowledge. To help with the problem of illiteracy in the Deaf Community ISH Shiksha was launched.
Currently we provide an Online Interactive Education platform for everyone. Via our network, we recruit and train Deaf or Hearing Teachers with various professional skills to provide proper quality Education to the Deaf Community in a properly accessible format. We will keep on adding more interesting courses to bring knowledge to the Deaf Community.
