Sign what you see for Ambo

Please join us in this great event. We are designing flashcards for the children in the Ambo Lazarist Deaf school.

The children will use the flashcards to sign out what they see on the card.
The cards will have words in both English and Oromo (which is the language they speak in the village)
There is a variety to choose from, you could send numbers / colours / letters – pick your favourite!!

You simply need to download whichever PDF you like, either colour it yourself or with children.

When it is completed scan it back onto the computer and email it to “flashcards@edp-ambo.com“. (Check your spam for our response!)

or you may also post it to :

Miriam ORegan
Horner Automation Group
Unit 1,
Centrepoint,
Centre Park Road,
Cork
T12 H24E

We will be running this initiative for the month of April. Once we have all the cards back, we will laminate them and ship them to Ethiopia.
It will be a fun activity for us in Ireland to design and its both fun and and educational tool for the children in Ethiopia to learn.
