Imagine not being able to hear anything and unable to communicate with people around you.
That was the existence of Patrick Otema, a 15-year-old who lives in a remote part of rural Uganda.
His seemingly unpromising life takes a turn for the better when he attends sign language classes.
See Patrick come out of his shell as he learns to communicate with others in this report produced by the UK’s Channel 4.
It’s truly one of the more wonderful things I’ve seen online in quite a while.
It might put a smile on your face, maybe even a tear in an eye.
