DEEDS provides free education to empower the deaf in India taking them one step closer to living independently. Following are the educational projects undertaken by DEEDS towards our mission.
Only 5% of deaf in India receive basic education of which very few receive higher education. We believe the right to education is the prerogative of all citizens and thus DEEDS set up a Higher Education programme to give the deaf the opportunity for further studies. As a normal graduate program is not designed for the special needs of the deaf, DEEDS overcame this stumbling block by setting up a DEEDS Junior & Degree College in Commerce.
Currently we have 200 students enrolled in the college. The students are taught subjects in Commerce through ISL by our specially trained faculty. This program enables the deaf to qualify for HSC Board Examination and subsequently to become Commerce Graduates in a secure environment. Our students are enthusiastic about learning and have shown tremendous results & success!
