Training programme on Communication

In keeping with VAANI’s aim of promoting networking between individuals and organisations working in the disability sector, we had arranged for Jhooma Sircar, a trained teacher of the deaf, to provide training on communication and sign language to teachers in an NGO in Kolkata. Jhooma herself is deaf and thanks to intervention and support from an early age, is able to communicate well. The request for this training had come from IICP Kolkata. This is a fine example of networking between three organisations to ensure that deaf children are provided with better services. In the words of one of the teachers, “Jhooma’s class was thoroghly enjoyed by all of us. The staff found it very informative and it has opened new vistas for us to further enance communication with some children like Ritima and Sharada. It has also educated us to communicate appropriately with people with hearing and speaking limitations in society.“
