ABOUT US

VISION AND MISSION

Our vision is to enrich and improve the quality of life of over 20,000 Deaf by the end of this decade and our mission is to make them financially self reliant and contributors in main stream society.

Deafness is an invisible disability to which we often turn a deaf ear. There are over 3.1 million Deaf in India and 22000 Deaf babies adding to this number every year (NSSO survey 2002) and yet less than 0.1% NGOs support the cause of the Deaf.

ACHIEVEMENTS

Since its inception in 2003, DEEDS has enriched and improved the lives of over 10,500 Deaf people and their families. Through 11 ongoing projects spread over Mumbai, Vadodara, Noida and Dehradun DEEDS is offering free education and vocational training to the Deaf and is fulfilling its mission of bringing purpose and happiness in the lives of the Deaf.
