Sampoorna Samvad - gesture language.

Sign languages (also known as signed languages) are languages that use the visual-manual modality to convey meaning. Sign languages are expressed through manual articulations in combination with non-manual elements. Sign languages are full-fledged natural languages with their own grammar and lexicon. Sign languages are an extremely important communication tool for many deaf and hard-of-hearing people. ... Although sign languages are used primarily by people who are deaf, they are also used by others, such as people who can hear but can't speak.

Gajera Trust has an objective to provide quality education to each and every child in the society, irrespective social or economical status. For fullfilling the vision and mission of the trust, GIS has organised a workshop 'Sampoorna Samvad ' on sign language on 7th January,by trainers of Karulkar Pratishtan, an NGO based in Maharashtra. They dedicated to the welfare and education of underprivileged section of the society. The learners of middle school were present during the session. The session started with Greeting words like 'hello' and 'hi' and continued with the signs for "yes, no, okay' etc. The learners got the opportunity to get to know about the signs which indicate the Alphabets, days of week and name of months. They also got to know about which signs they can use for asking name, school, police station, hospital and so on. Our learners were so happy to follow the signs when they were instructed to follow. It was an enthusiastic and new experience for the learners. Even after the session the learners were using it. They were also made to perform a few activities. They realised how difficult it will be to express the emotions and feelings for differently abled people.
