SASL-Confidence

South African Sign Language Lessons – Confidence

Technology has changed the dating landscape, first with online dating, and now with a slew of mobile apps that supposedly make meeting new people easier. But what if you’re shy? Even using a mobile app can be intimidating for introverts and people lacking in confidence, making an already difficult task that much harder. Although there is sometimes an overlap between shyness and introversion, they are essentially two very different traits. Author Susan Cain explained it as:

Shyness is the fear of social disapproval or humiliation, while introversion is a preference for environments that are not overstimulating.

Both shyness and introversion can affect our ability to meet new people, but only shyness relates to a lack of confidence – which can be changed.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo helps out a young man who is having trouble meeting women, and her advice to him would enable him to boost his self-confidence, and meet people.

DTV-Charles-Nyakurwa

Charles Nyakurwa

Charles Nyakurwa

While travelling for Zwakala Africa 2016, Candice Morgan made time to meet with Charles Nyakurwa, a social entrepreneur and founder of Deaf Hands at Work (DHW).

Charles was inspired to start DHW because his brother, Peter, is Deaf and never had access to the same opportunities that Charles did. Founded in 2012 with limited resources, DHW has grown to employ 15 Deaf employees, and is now able to take on a variety of construction projects, along with designing and making furniture, and a small line of children’s clothing.

For Charles, it is not about assisting the Deaf, but rather empowering them so that they can achieve true independence.

South African Sign Language Lessons

We live in an incredibly diverse world, but it is still easy for us to worry about how other people judge us when all that really matters is how happy we are, regardless of what other people think.

In this weeks South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo addresses the concerns of a young woman in an interracial relationship. In this case, love is what matters, not other people’s opinions.

Slacklining

Slacklining is the act of walking along flat webbing suspended between two points. Although it is sometimes confused with tightrope walking, slacklining uses different materials, and the amount of tension applied to the flat webbing differs too.

Popular since the 1970s, modern slacklining has grown to encompass different styles, from urbanlining, tricklining and waterlining, through to highlining and even slackline yoga.

Thabo Ntatlo spent a morning in Delta Park, Johannesburg, learning more about slacklining from Tim Slabelersky and Jessie Douhca.

DTV-Mandela-Day

Mandela Day

Mandela Day

Mandela Day was first celebrated in 2009, and by 2010 it was an officially declared International Day, following a decision by the UN General Assembly.

Mandela Day acts as a global call to action, celebrating the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact, starting with offering up 67-minutes of your time for a good cause. There are no “rules” in terms of what you should do with your 67-minutes, but the goal is that the day acts as catalyst to bringing about change in our world: fighting poverty, promoting peace, and encouraging reconciliation and an appreciation of cultural diversity.

The DTV team spent their time cleaning the homes of Deaf and elderly residents of Soweto. What did you do with your 67-minutes?

Sudwala Caves

The Sudwala Caves in Mpumalanga were formed more than 200-million years ago, and in prehistoric times were probably used for shelter. More recently, in the nineteenth century, the caves were used as a fortress during a power struggle for the Swazi throne, and to store weapons during the Anglo-Boer War.

Since the late 1960s, the caves have been a tourist attraction, with guided tours of the caves lasting 1-5 hours. While visiting Mpumalanga, the DTV team made a stop at this natural phenomena.

SASL-Labour-Principles

South African Sign Language Lessons – Labour Principles

South Africa has several laws affecting employee rights, working conditions and general labour principles. Despite this, unethical employers will still try to exploit employees by making them work longer hours without compensation, and by finding ways to deny them a salary increase. Because of South Africa’s high unemployment rate, many employees are reluctant to fight against this until they can no longer tolerate being taken advantage of.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson Karabo advises a young woman who isn’t being paid for overtime work, and hasn’t received a salary increase for several years.

DTV-SA-Deaf-Cricket

Thabo also spoke with several players about how they felt when selected to play for South African Deaf Cricket, and what they thought of the team overall.

Troy Panaino sat down with Colin Venter on their return from Dubai to find out how South Africa performed, and what the experience meant for everyone involved.

The South Africa Deaf Cricket Team that travelled to Dubai were:

Colin Venter, André Chetty, Paulo da Costa, Shanon van der Berg, Ahmed du Plooy, Camerin Cook, Shane Gangan, Gerard Kroese, Prince Mashigo, Reinhardt Limbach, Onalerona Semise, André van Rooyen, Eric Minaar, Sivesh Poonsamy, Rual Kumalo.

SASL-Office-Parties

South African Sign Language Lessons – Office Parties

Office parties are a great way to network, and to connect with leaders in your organisation that you don’t normally interact with. Unfortunately, it is also an opportunity to drink too much, and embarrass yourself in front of your colleagues. Some important points to remember at future office parties:

  • Although office parties are intended as social events they remain business events. Act as though your behavior is being observed every minute.
  • Conduct yourself professionally at all times. Don’t use the office party as an excuse to blow off steam. It’s still a company function, so proper behaviour matters.
  • Don’t drink excessively just because it’s an open bar. You can always eat and drink more after the party.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson Karabo advises a young woman who thinks she drank too much at an office party, and is now embarrassed to face her colleagues again. The only recourse is to bravely face them all again, apologise, and learn to behave more responsibly in the future.

DTV-Nkosinathi-Ndlovu

Nkosinathi Ndlovu

Nkosinathi Ndlovu

Earlier this year the DTV team met with the President of the South African Deaf Youth Development Project, Nkosinathi Ndlovu, to learn more about SADYDP, its mission, and why Nkosinathi started the organisation.

Although it is similar to government’s National Youth Project , SADYDP focuses on developing youth leaders within the Deaf community, and raising awareness of unemployment affecting deaf youth.

Thabo Ntatlo soon learns that Nkosinathi is passionate about helping and empowering people, not only the Deaf, and he is involved with various other projects that he is just as passionate about.

Izak Davel

Thabo Ntatlo visits the Isidingo set to meet with actor, singer, dancer and model, Izak Davel.

Izak has been performing on stage and screen from an early age, and first rose to prominence in Egoli. But his current role as Bradley Haines in Isidingo is how many younger viewers know him.
