Staff of KIPPRA marked the International Sign Language Day on 23rd September 2022 by learning basics in Kenya Sign Language (KSL). The sensitization was facilitated by staff who undertook a comprehensive training in KSL early this year.
The staff were taken through the KSL alphabet, numbers, salutations, etiquette and names of animals, food and drinks. After every session, the learners were given a chance to demonstrate what they had grasped. The session was championed by members of the Gender and Disability Mainstreaming Committee.
KIPPRA has over the years incorporated various initiatives to promote disability mainstreaming and support Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). These include employing PWDs in various capacities, engaging in Corporate Social Responsibility events targeting special needs’ learning institutions and transforming its products and services to reach PWDs.
