Names

David Worlobah does mission work among the deaf in Liberia. At his school, he teaches sign language and job skills to deaf students. In addition to working directly with the students, he seeks to change attitudes in the surrounding area. In some parts of Africa, persons with disabilities are considered of little value. He makes the poignant observation that until beginning studies at his school, many of his students did not realize that they had names. Their deafness deprived them of the pleasures of hearing, the esteem of their culture, the opportunity to work and feel productive, and even their identity.
