My successes for people with hearing impairment

Ukraine | YouthSpark Ukraine | 2 Oct 2017



Hanna (28 years of age) from Vinnytsya shared how the project helped her and one of the IDEA Network members NGO ‘Parostok’ (Sprout) to develop. Hanna works as a Dactylology translator at the Vinnitsa Social and Economic Institute of the University ‘Ukraine’. ‘Thanks to participation in the project of the NGO ‘Parostok’ (Sprout)’ - said Hanna, ‘I had the opportunity to participate in developing a pocket dictionary of the Ukrainian sign language for the police. To work successfully, I lacked confidence in working with text input and editing as well as in working with images and photographs. At the IDEA Center of NGO ‘Parostok’ NGO, I successfully completed the training on working with the Microsoft Office suite and the basic work with images, and I was regularly receiving other consultations on other computing aspects from the IDEA Center's trainers. My work on the vocabulary was gradually moving forward, and finally I managed to do it! The dictionary was issued, and the police got copies for use. Thanks to the IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark, I was honored to be involved in building a police co-operation with people with hearing impairment’.
