Exciting Signs of the Times!

The Marshall Islands Ministry of Education, Gallaudet Regional Center of the Pacific, and the Pacific and Hawaii Deaf-Blind Project are all working together to further educational opportunities for deaf and blind children.  The RMI has one of the highest incidences of deafness in the region.  Majuro has some 70 deaf students.  Two new Deaf World Teach volunteers are now slated to come to Majuro and two more to Ebeye for teacher training and sign language classes.  The next step is to add courses at the college level.  Here we are sending you our “Iakwe!” or “Hello” greetings in sign language.
