Standard Bank Namibia and ClaSH this week launched the 2014 ClaSH calender. This is the 17th edition sponsored by the bank.
The calender has assisted ClaSH to raise international and local awareness on the needs and services available for hearing impaired children in Namibia. In addition to the calender, Standard Bank also supports ClaSH’s outreach programmes that are aimed at identifying children with hearing loss at an early stage. Standard Bank Namibia provided N$105,000 to CLaSH, mainly for the production of the 2014 calender, while the remaining funds are used for the necessary outreach efforts.
“Let my fingers do the talking” is the message for the calender of 2014, mirroring the same message as last year’s only that it is using different words to say “even though we are deaf we can talk nevertheless”. The calender does not only illustrate the richness of sign communication but also the incredible expressiveness of the deaf children’s faces.
The 2014 calender is in A4 format and is more user-friendly in the sense that is can readily be used as a diary as well.
The calendar sells for N$80 and is available at the CLaSH offices near the Polytechnic in Windhoek, at various bookshops country wide, and from Penduka.
