Hi there Love Abides My name is Allan Maingi, a local here in Kenya ..just happened to pass by this site while doing some research on Kenyan Sign Language. I would like to say I think this mission is really worth it and may it positively impact you guys and also the children/ people at Kakuswi. Personally I would love to get the chance to interact with you guys and also help out on your mission, if this would be possible kindly let me know. cheers 🙂
