Hearing-impaired students memorise the Koran in sign language in Indonesia

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Hearing-impaired students memorise the Koran in sign language in Indonesia” – below is their description.

Darul A’shom is one of the few religious boarding schools for the hearing-impaired in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority country. Opened in 2019, the school enables students in Yogyakarta to memorise and study the Koran in sign language, at a time when hearing-impaired children are marginalised from public schools. Children also study sharia, mathematics, science and foreign languages to enable them to pursue higher education.
