Deaf children experience a poverty that hearing children do not experience…poverty of language. Rarely are Deaf children exposed to sign language from birth and even fewer are exposed to sign language in other countries, ever. Sponsoring a Deaf child attending a Deaf school with one of our partners in Vietnam or Honduras helps supply the basics of life, food, clothing, shelter and basic medical needs.
In addition, they also receive language learning, an education, and so much more! These Deaf children are endearing and amaze us, even more, as their worlds emerge with language. Our partners, New Beginnings School for the Deaf, Central Deaf Services (both in Vietnam) and Manos Felices (Honduras) all seek to love these children and those who care for them, unconditionally.
Your daily prayers for them…are life-changing, as well. Partnering with these Deaf Schools, in this endeavor, will ensure these blessings continue.
Han is a sharp girl and knows how to apply what she learns from school to her everyday life. She has grown and changed a lot through character development lessons. Before, she was easily angered and disrespectful when someone was not nice to her, even with an elderly. Now Han is more gentle and polite, especially with the elderly. She has learned how to help and love others, and has become a wonderful example for her peers to follow. She helps her friends distinguish between the right and the wrong things in some situations. Han takes care of herself very well. She enjoys wearing beautiful clothes and styling her hair for school. Han and her family send many thanks to for giving her an interesting and useful studying environment to help her learn and grow.
