The deaf community in Ethiopia deserves to live in the shadows no more, which is why we at People to People are striving to work side-by-side with local change-makers at the forefront of deaf education, empowerment, and service delivery in the country in helping to reach some of society’s most silenced members.

Together we can change this reality. We can help empower them to realize their dreams and to unleash a vast reservoir of untapped potential...

In August 2012 we are coordinating a small volunteer group to Addis Ababa, Bahir Dar, & Wollisso, Ethiopia to work with local partner organizations in supporting deaf education efforts and laying the foundation for future projects geared towards mobilizing the deaf community in Ethiopia. We will be volunteering at local deaf schools, visiting with local change-makers leading the way forward for serving the deaf community and creating public awareness, learning about the local culture, and enjoying the cultural beauty and richness of this remarkable place. Join us! For more information, please email Greg Buie (P2P Chief Operating Officer) at gtbuie@gmail.com.
