Mission Statement

To provide a safe, enriching environment for deaf students to grow to their full potential.

Description

DEAAF, Deaf Education & Arts for African Families, was created with the vision to provide education to children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The DeSanto Centre is the space we are able to implement this vision. We work with parents so they can better communicate with their children and, in addition, strive to eradicate the negative stigma associated with deaf children. In raising social awareness, we encourage the local community to participate in educating not only deaf children but also themselves regarding deaf culture. By affiliating our organisation with the community, governmental, and not-for-profit organisations, we aspire to initiate and manage programs highlighting the fact that deaf people in Africa are capable of making a positive contribution to society.
