Our Mission Series
Our missions focus on providing disaster-recovery aid and self-defense training for the global Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing community.
In many parts of the world, the Deaf/HH are inadvertently deprived of language, education and humanitarian relief efforts due to lack of access to communication. During a natural disaster, when an NGO brings relief efforts such as food and water –unless directed to go specifically to the deaf, the supplies will immediately go to those who hear as notifications are transmitted by word-of-mouth (loud-speaker and walkie-talkie). Without electricity, those who rely on visual communication, like Sign Language, are unable to communicate after sundown simply because there is no light. A person with a hearing-loss is 150% more likely to be a victim of sexual assault. For all these reasons, is why we are here.
