Volunteer with a Deaf Education Project

Project Overview

By volunteering on a deaf education project, you will be able to apply specialist skills to assist deaf children with their day-to-day learning.

Students with physical, mental or developmental disabilities can often find it frustrating when trying to learn inside a standard educational environment, Volunteer for Africompassion has partnered with a national high school and an institute of special education in Magu and Bukoba to address the needs of the deaf. The role of the volunteer is to help mentor the children and assist teachers in conducting their classes.

Volunteers for this project must have experience in working with deaf children and are preferably required to know International Sign Language. There are very few local sign language interpretors in Mwanza City, which means the arrival of a volunteer who can translate standard English spoken language into sign language is extremely rewarding for the deaf children and for the instructors.
