First school for deaf children opened by Pingalwara society at Hoshiarpur city
April 30, 2018
The All India Pingalwara Charitable Society has opened its first school for children with hearing disabilities at a gurdwara in Garhshankar in Hoshiarpur.
By involving gurdwaras in this initiative, the aim is to make up for the lack of professional schools for deaf children in Punjab.
At present, sign language is taught in six schools where 270 students study. The Pingalwara society has appealed to all gurdwaras to give them space to hold classes.
The schools are using digital technology to teach the children. The students are identified by the field staff of the charitable society.
So far, deaf schools have been set up in 12 districts of the state.
