A visit to the National School for the Deaf, Freetown
Posted by The Thing With Feathers - Laura Cook on July 4, 2014 in Sierra Leone, Visual Storytelling |
I am currently working out of the beautiful West African country of Sierra Leone. One of the personal photo projects I hope to start work on next year is one promoting a more positive image of people with disability in Sierra Leone. I had the pleasure this week of spending some time at The National School for the Deaf in Freetown with some beautiful and engaging children. Here are some of the photographs. I hope to release the rest of the images in time as the project develops:
Mohamed stares into one of the classrooms at The National School for the Deaf in Freetown.
A student shows her skills at the blackboard.
One of the older students at the school shows the sign for the letter ‘C’. Visual cues are important in schools working with children with hearing impairment.
Girls together in their classroom.
Helping each other learn. An older student sits down with some younger pupils helping them read.
Great project! The kids seems to be enjoying school 🙂
Absolutely superb images Laura.
Thanks so much.
