“We enjoyed and it was fun learning something new?”
This was the collective response from the 18 energetic young guys. We learnt –
1| Basics of Indian Sign Language (ISL),
2| Cells – Skin cells(melanocytes)- Skin pigment(Melanin) & how the composition of melanin influences our skin colour – Absence of Melanin(Vitiligo) – Treatments – Vitiligo is a skin condition- doesn’t cause impairment – not contagious.
3| How to orient the blind and how solutions can help each one of us overcome our inabilities.
- G. | What will you do when it’s dark? Will you be able to see? You use a solution right? -Torchlight. Similarly, we discussed various solutions which people with/without disability use.
Hearty thanks to the 4 trainers who were also part of the session & to Youth for Seva for the opportunity.
