Sing Language Centre fights against social exclusion of deaf persons in one of the poorest countries of the Europe. Lack of sing language interpreters causes expensive services and exclusion of the deaf and hearing-impaired people. Through sign language centre we can support self-help groups and families with deaf children and to push for their inclusion in society through better access to education, information and provide them with free assistance and proffesional help.
Deaf people are about twice as likely to have mental health problems as people in the general population. Current Moldavian legislative rules unreasonably limit most of the development services, dues to the lack of a coherent and sustainable funding for services provided by NGOs. The purpose of social project is to help local solve the problems of socially excluded groups of deaf persons, to support directly self-help groups and to push for their inclusion in society.
Our main goals are to create a centre of specialists of sign language with free service and provide proffesional mental health assistance for families with deaf children. Interpretation services will be provided by students, teachers, volunteers, parents and other special trained persons in order to assist persons with hearing disabilities in access to information, communication and other daily issues which they have to fight with.
The unique Sign Language Centre will help to raise job qualification, bring new abroad education challenges for deaf or hearing-impaired people. Centre will also aim to raise awareness about mental health of deaf or hearing-impaired children and will provide their families with assistance.
