Tawanda Matende

Sign language in Zimbabwe is not a curriculum subject and is not yet described. There is no movement on the ground geared towards Sign language teaching and learning in schools. Tawanda’s study generates awareness on the need for policy, teaching and learning of sign language. His research interests are also in the areas of linguistic human rights advocacy, language policy and planning, language and sustainable development, and minority languages activism.
