“SLCO” stands for “Sign Bilingualism and Co-enrolment”. Our Chinese name consist of the characters “language” and “bridge”, which stands for our aspiration to use language to bridge the gap between the deaf and the hearing communities. Through promoting both signed and spoken language, language will no longer be an impediment that hinders communication between different communities. Knowledge transfer can then take place, in which people can be empowered to discover and use their abilities to contribute to the society, thus becoming important community resources.
Our logo takes the shape of the Chinese hieroglyph character for ‘hand’ and as a dandelion. The word ‘hand’ not only represents sign language and the deaf culture, but it also symbolises team work and innovation. Just as how the seeds of dandelions are dispersed by the wind, we want the rationale of “Sign Bilingualism” and “Co-enrolment” to spread in society.
