Mission & Vision

Our Vision: 

That Deaf children, in particular those who are living in rural communities in Ethiopia, can access their full right to a quality education (through sign language) and experience the joy of inclusion. 

Our Mission:

In partnership with the Ambo Lazarist Deaf School in Ethiopia, the EDP works to support and develop a school that: 

  • Is welcoming and inclusive;
  •  Understands and meets the educational needs of deaf children;
  •  Provides access to learning through Ethiopian Sign Language;
  • Challenges negative social and cultural attitudes that often leave deaf children isolated, stigmatised and lacking access to language, school or services;
  • Supports the on-going development of the school staff; 
  • Engages with the Department of Social Affairs to help promote awareness of deaf peoples’ abilities and needs.
