2016 has been a busy year for Communicability Global! For a small (but perfectly formed!) organisation, we have been involved in a number of innovative projects including:
Chance for Childhood: Education, Equity and Empowerment project, Northern Rwanda
Chance for Childhood: Communication Camps, Northern Rwanda
Chance for Childhood / UNICEF / Handicap International: Curriculum design, Rwanda
Chance for Childhood: LEAP project and wider dsiability communications work (Kenya, UK)
University of Rwanda: BSc SLT degree design
UNHCR, MMU, IHCD: Supporting refugee-survivors of SGBV with communication dsiability
In addition, both Helen and Julie have attended a number of key global conferences, presenting on their work in East Africa and have written and published a number of papers. Some are still in press but look out for the links on the resorces page soon.
2017 is set to be an exciting one: We are planning to expand our work with UNHCR and MMU to further support the SGBV project in Rwanda and are in discussions with Strive Rwanda to support them to implement inclusive early childhood development training for community health workers and ECD centre staff in three districts.We will continue our work with Chance for Childhood in Rwanda and the East African region and hope to develop more opportunities to advocate for people with communication disabilities worldwide.
For all our supporters, friends, partners and the people we work for - people with communication disabilities - who celebrate Christmas, we hope you have a very merry one and that 2017 is the best yet.
See you next year!
