Summer reading: photo of deaf students in Tanzania reading Wave

Looking for stirring summer reading? Here’s Wave!

The Summer Issue of Wave is packed with new developments, the achievements of existing projects and a “frank” interview!

Signal’s Chairman, Rod Clark, reveals plans for a Signal Hub to bring together services for people who are deaf or who have hearing impairments. This is a first in Shropshire!

We also report on Signal’s first British Sign Language taster session, which gave people in Shrewsbury and beyond the chance to explore this expressive way of communicating.

Please do note and share the dates of the popular tinnitus support group meetings in Shrewsbury and Telford, too.

In overseas news, Signal’s International Programmes Manager, Karen Goodman-Jones, describes the work which is giving deaf children and young people in Uganda and Tanzania a fairer start in life.

The requests to our partners to expand the programme in Uganda, so that children in neighbouring areas can enjoy the same fairer start, reminds us that there is still much hard work ahead.

Karen also introduces Ebenezer, a proud graduate of the Vocational Training Centre for Deaf Learners (VTCD) in the Kilimanjaro Region.

Last but not least, discover what motivates our partners in Zambia to carry out their work in the Wave Interview.
