8:30am to 10:00am
Over 200 million Deaf people in developing countries have no access to education, and are often misrepresented by those who don’t understand the Deaf experience. This presentation will focus on five years of research identifying the challenges and successes of local Deaf leaders in Nepal, Kenya, Cambodia and many other developing countries. In addition, the presenters will share their collaborative approach to building local capacity by providing organizational development training directly in sign language. When Deaf leaders are more effective, they can create societies where Deaf people are afforded human rights and equal access to education and employment.
