What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Social Inclusion of the Deaf

With funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and partnership with the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD), Discovering Deaf Worlds will provide Deaf Dominicans with training on the topics of; organizational development, process consultation, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and Deaf Rights to improve the sustainability of the Dominican Republic’s National Association of the Deaf (ANSORDO) and its leadership.

By strengthening the capacity of Dominican Deaf leaders to advocate for the rights of Deaf Dominicans, communicate effectively with government officials, educators and the media, and sustain these efforts over time, this program actively promotes the rights of Dominican deaf people and their full inclusion in their country’s legal and educational systems. The continued work of the Dominican Deaf leaders trained through this program will ultimately support quality, inclusive education for Deaf students, and the integration of deaf youth and adults in the competitive workforce.
