Helping Find Deaf Organizations Around the World
The Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS) at Gallaudet University is seeking assistance in identifying both national- and local-level deaf organizations around the world.
Gallaudet is the only liberal arts university for deaf students internationally and is in Washington, DC. CIPS plans to develop a web site providing information for Deaf individuals and deaf organizations around the world. This work is being done in June and July 2009 by a short-term graduate student intern, Andrea Shettle.
As a first step, CIPS wishes to make a list of organizations of Deaf people around the world with their full contact information (name of organization; mailing address; phone number; fax number; SMS; email address if any; website if any). This includes international, national, and local-level organizations. This information could help deaf organizations find each other so they can exchange knowledge and ideas.
If you think you may be able to assist in making this list as accurate and as comprehensive as possible, please contact Andrea Shettle at CIPS (Andrea.Shettle@gallaudet.edu) between now and July 17, 2009. You can help ensure that CIPS does not miss any of the deaf organizations you are familiar with in your country or elsewhere! The emphasis for the next few weeks is on deaf organizations in developing countries. However, information in locating deaf organizations in all countries is welcome.
Everyone who attempts to assist CIPS in assembling this list will eventually receive a Word document file listing all the deaf organizations we are able to find worldwide.
