Discovering Deaf Worlds

Studies from the World Health Organization and the World Federation of the Deaf report that there are between 70 million and 200 million Deaf people in the world who do not have access to education- people who often times never learn to read, write, sign or otherwise communicate.  In developing countries, at least 90% of deaf people do not go to school.

In response to this, Discovering Deaf Worlds (DDW), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is advancing the self-determination of signing Deaf communities by strengthening local capacity in developing countries. Ultimately, we aim to reduce those statistics. 

Currently DDW is partnering with the Philippine Federation of the Deaf in the Philippines and the Siglo 21 Team in Costa Rica.  For more information, click here.
