Embangweni School for the Hard of Hearing – Malawi

http://marionmedical.org/deaf_school.htm

“The Embangweni School for the Hard of Hearing began in a borrowed building in 1994 with 19 students and a staff of 4. Because this was the only school for the deaf in the northern third of Malawi, the students came from as far as 400 kilometers away and, of course, all had to board at the school. Education focused on “preschool” or pre-academics, with much work done to teach the children the very basics of language (like, “things have names”) and sound production.”
