International Sign Language Day Campaign By MASH Project Foundation, IDEA And Josh

The importance of sign language in the society is explicit but the knowledge of the same is inadequate. With the intention to sensitize, empower and encourage the youth Josh MASH and IDEA came together to curate a campaign and a challenge for the International day of sign language.

The idea is to teach people sign language and shed light on the importance of communicating with people who have a speaking disability. The challenge allows people to practice these signs in a playway manner in the format of edutainment. The campaign is launched in 10+ languages and is receiving an overwhelming response in the form #ISupportSignLangugae filter on the app.

International Sign Language Day is an initiative to build an inclusive place for people with speaking disabilities to find their place in society.

The narrative of the campaign was to spread awareness about the importance of sign language and how people can contribute by supporting the people with this disability through learning their language and building conversations that lead to a more inclusive society.

Communications Head of IDEA, Siddhi Ojha said ,"While diversity is cited as a top value by almost every organization, people with disabilities often are overlooked or under-supported. Very few organizations include initiatives for hiring people with disabilities. As a result, we are missing out on a great source of talent, and we're all missing out on the full potential of people who can be Assets.

IDEA is working towards an Inclusion and Diversity of PwDs by Skilling , Scaling and Speeding their readiness for every field. On World sign language Day we want to highlight and emphasize on the importance of understanding and including sign language as a requirement to make our workplaces more inclusive and adaptive for PwDs ."

Founder of MASH Project Foundation, Aashish Beergi said, "MASH Project Foundation is an inclusive place and wants to create varied inclusive communities. Our aim is to make the youth sensitive towards the feelings and sentiments of all communities and facilitate education amongst them toward the same cause."
