eachers and some of the students from Groupe Scolaire Rukingu teachers and some students in Rulindo district are being trained on the talk and signs used by the deaf.
This school receives all kinds of students, normal and those with different disabilities and it is only right that teachers understand how to communicate with them as Donatien Mutuyimana the headmaster of this school explains.

This training for 5 days and was conducted in April.2012 an end that saw them equipped with basic knowledge about the signs used in such communication.
“The Rwandan association for the deaf prepared this training, this is not first and we hope it is not the last” the headmaster said.
