Skilling Deaf Youth
Our training centre designs flexible, and market responsive courses. These courses help our creative Deaf Community in both entrepreneurial and livelihood skills, enabling them to develop and create more sustainable business ideas.
Our goal is to create meaningful opportunities for Deaf youth through connecting them to the right people, markets, networks, potential partners and funders, and viable skills to aid them get established in sustainable employment/ business ventures.
Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges confronting humanity today. Nature faces the effects of climate change, but it also plays a much broader role in it. Depending on how the world’s ecosystems are managed, they can either contribute to the problem, or provide effective nature-based solutions to solving it.
Contributing to the climate problem, the loss and degradation of forests alone currently constitute around 12% of human-caused carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The land sector as a whole, including agriculture, forests and other land uses, is responsible for nearly a quarter of global emissions.
However, we now know that the avoidance of these emissions through better conservation and land management actions offers a feasible, cost-effective option that is available in the near term. Managing nature well can thus make a significant contribution towards global climate mitigation efforts.
What are we doing?
We envision a shift in how nature is leveraged at community level as a solution to climate change and we seek to enable degraded ecosystems to recover, maximize nature’s role in helping vulnerable populations adapt to present and future climate impacts.
Environmental conservation activities are carried out such as Tree planting, plastic and polythene bags collection and decomposition/ and re-use. Several campaigns on climate change are emphasized for Deaf people to take part in as they are also responsible citizens of the Earth.

Consulting, Advocacy & Awareness
We ought to advocate to government and other national and international policy making bodies to make reforms and enact/ implement the laws that promote the human rights of deaf and disabled people in several sectors (economically, socially, politically) full inclusion in development.
We raise awareness through media platforms (radios, TVs, newspapers), social media platforms about the deaf people, their culture, abilities and generally human rights.
We provide consultation services to possible employers of deaf and disabled people about how, what, why they should employ deaf people/ treat them while at their jobs and counseling as well as sign language training to them. We also provide information as consulted by policy making bodies about how deaf and disabled people can be included in all aspects of development and how they should be budgeted for.
