International Day for Sign Languages
The International Day of Sign Languages is observed on September 23 every year to raise awareness about the importance of sign languages as a means of communication "in the full realization of the human rights of people who are deaf", according to the United Nations.
Effective communication should include people living with disability and this can be achieved when everyone promotes inclusivity by learning the language for non-verbal people. The World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) has issued a Global Leaders Challenge to promote the use of sign languages by local, national, and global leaders.
As a community that is dedicated to people living with disability, Project Asha is strongly advocating for the inclusion of sign language at the very basic level of education. To create awareness and foster the ease of communication in the society.
