monthly donors


In Argentina, teachers of the deaf do not use sign language. Thus, deaf students have no access to a complete school curriculum. The deficient education places the deaf community in a critical situation. Deaf students abandon school or finish their schooling at a very low academic level. Their simplified curricular program makes integration into high school very hard, especially in the fields of language and social sciences. Beneficiaries: deaf students, deaf adults and teachers.


Designing of videos, translation into sign language, training of interpreters, video recording and editing, copying and distribution.

Long-Term Impact

Deaf students will raise their academic level, which will enable them to continue their superior education. These videos will show that deaf people are perfectly able to learn, and that the difficulties they face are related to lack of access.
