Biographical Info

We are finding deaf children living in remote areas or small communities who have no language and no hope for education. Many have families who have ostracized them and make no attempt to communicate with them. Unfortunately, as with some disabled children in developing countries, these deaf children are vulnerable to abuse and neglect. We aim to change the lives of these children.

Our vision is for the Deaf in Haiti to be empowered and self-reliant. Through the Haiti Deaf Academy, we provide language development, academic and spiritual education, vocational training, job placement and deaf advocacy training to enable the Deaf to become more visible and understood in Haiti.
