Ethiopia Deaf Project

A voluntary organisation committed to raising funds for the education of Deaf children at the Ambo Lazarist Deaf School in Ethiopia. We have a special concern for Deaf children living in rural communities who are very marginalised and have no access to school.

    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.
