In Tanzania, over 500,000 deaf individuals face enormous barriers to education and communication. Our project is focused on proactive outreach. We're not waiting for change; we're sending our local volunteer, Patrick, into rural villages in Dodoma to find the deaf children who need a chance at education. Our mission is to locate these children and provide them with tailored education, including teaching Tanzanian Sign Language for effective communication.

Breaking the chains of isolation For countless deaf children in Tanzania, learning and communication are out of reach. Deaf people are stigmatised and ostracised in places like Tanzania so girls like Cleria, are hidden away at home. Local schools won't take them and their parents are too poor to afford the uniform, books and the transport needed to start at Kigwe School - the specialised school for the deaf in Dodoma.


Kigwe School in Dodoma is a beacon of hope. It's the premier government primary school for deaf children, providing a curriculum designed to meet their unique needs. Here, they learn in Tanzanian Sign Language, gaining the power to communicate and learn. The government provides essential resources, accommodation, and meals, ensuring these children get the education they deserve.
