SLCO Community Resources joined the Social Venture Challenge Asia 2017 co-organized by DBS Foundation and Nation University of Singapore with the project “Fun with Sign and Speech – Early Sign Bilingual Development Programme”. The project was shortlisted as one of the top 15 finalists from 1069 entries across 27 countries in Asia, representatives were sent to Singapore to attend the Finals in early October. SLCO Community Resources is honoured to receive the “Asia For Good Reader’s Choice Award” which was for the project with the most public votes as the most popular project. This Award was especially important for SLCO Community Resources as it proved that the rationale being promoted – “Sign Bilingualism” and “Deaf-Hearing Inclusion” , is well accepted and supported by the public locally and abroad. This gave us a shot in the arm to further our work. Thank you once again for all the support.
