At one school in Togo, a deaf student can sign with her hearing classmates and teachers. That’s because the organization Humanity & Inclusion (HI) taught them sign language. In consequence, the deaf student now has communication access at school. Before now, other schools refused to enroll her. The HI project changed that. The Togo deaf student now signs and also earns good grades and plays with friends.  

The web page has some accessibility features for people using screen reading software. For example, some images use alternative text to describe them.
