Nippon Foundation funds linguistics research and training program in Hong Kong

 Excerpted:

In August 2006, the Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies (CSLDS) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong received a generous funding from the Nippon Foundation, a non-government organization based in Japan, to run the Asia Pacific Sign Linguistics Research and Training Program (The APSL Program).

Teams of professionally trained sign language researchers will be generated to support the establishment of sign linguistics research and training at the region, which ultimately promotes the concept of incorporating sign language in deaf education at different levels.
