Initiative: Personal/Individual Account
Organization: “Humans of Sign Language”
Location: Delhi, India
Humans of Sign Language was started as a digital movement through a Facebook Page aiming to provide a platform for deaf people to share their ideas. Oshin Dhawan started this initiative because of a deep-seated interest in learning about differently-abled communities. Humans of Sign Language focusses on the empowerment of the deaf community through creative collaboration. With regular interaction with the deaf community, Oshin developed immense love and respect for the language of silence – Indian Sign Language. Humans of Sign Language leverages social media for creating awareness on Indian Sign Language. A YouTube channel was started to bridge the gap between the deaf and hearing community through the sign language. Videos about sign language and the deaf culture with the deaf people was extensively talked about on the YouTube channel.
