Studio KSL

Innovation Summary
eKitabu will launch Studio KSL as a resource to help the Deaf community and local content creators integrate sign language videos into early grade readers, producing visual storybooks for primary literacy in support of Kenya's new Inclusive Education policy. Investing to set up Studio KSL and streamline production with Deaf actors will lower the cost of producing quality visual storybooks and help to document regional differences in Kenyan Sign Language.
