Challenge

Deaf people have the potential to make significant contributions to community development but are rarely given the opportunity to present themselves as leaders. Limited access to education opportunities, discriminatory beliefs and practices, has left many deaf people seeing themselves as powerless, despite their many capabilities. Without deliberate efforts and communication issues being addressed, their voice remains unheard in decisions that affect them.

Solution

Rural clubs that sprouted from an urban club based at Nzeve provide platforms through which deaf people can be reached for social and training opportunities. Skills development workshops will be arranged, to build confidence, social and communication skills. These are a key part of effective leadership. Opportunities for exposure on different platforms, including dialogues with civic and business leaders, training, and experience of social and local media, will be facilitated.

Long-Term Impact

As leaders in their communities, deaf women are best equipped to reach other deaf young women as mentors and role models to their families. Deaf women and men will successfully lead their own projects. Exposure of industry leaders to deaf people will demonstrate their capabilities to be meaningfully engaged in communities, breaking cultural stereotypes and reducing their negative effects.
