Sign language instruction for hearing impaired child in Nicaragua

Manos Unidas provides access to sign language education and learning resources to the deaf community in Nicaragua. Marie Coppola, founder and co-chair of Manos Unidas, updates us on what’s new with her organization.

Manos Unidas says its mission is, "to ensure equal access to educational and vocational opportunities for deaf children and young adults by providing access to sign language, Spanish literacy, numeracy, and real-life job skills so they can become contributing members of society and in the deaf community."
