Why? Signs of Love is an organization serving the rural Deaf along the northern coast of Honduras. We have made a commitment to work in the deaf classroom in the local special needs school for three years. We hope to provide more opportunities for these Deaf and to train future leaders to work with the other 70 Deaf people we serve in rural villages who do not have access to education. We currently have one North American teacher in a classroom with 25 Deaf students ages 3-21, with two Honduran women assisting. We are looking for someone to commit to working in the classroom for the Deaf and training teachers in both the villages and the city for a period of 2 months or more. This is a nonpaying, volunteer position. Please consider making a difference in the lives of theses precious Deaf children!
