Life and work have kept us exceptionally busy – so busy that it was only this year that we realized we have been breaking with this tradition for far too long. Here it comes, then, – our review of the previous year. We have lot to share, a lot to be thankful for and, unfortunately, a few losses to grieve. The cumulative number of protegees of the Lehnhardt Foundation reached 160 this year. Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Germany and Italy were only some of the countries we visited for personal and work travel. We hope that in the process of doing so we have been able to lay the groundwork of changes for the better that are needed by deaf people in certain countries – and globally.
Welcome to our summary of the year 2018!
