Helping Find Deaf Organizations Around the World

Posted on 23 June 2009. Filed under: Announcements, Call for Comments or Information, Deaf | Tags: , , , , , , , |

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 ( 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.

Contact Andrea Shettle in regard to sharing contact information for deaf organizations you are familiar with at between now and July 17, 2009.

Dear Ms Shettle, I shall certainly help in this task. shall send what you require. This work is much needed- a resource cum helpline cum directory rolled in one. of course if it is available in print and other forms of communication medium too will help, for those who genuinely need them- those who have no access, are not aware and cannot afford too. we need to rethink ways of doing this- the more we network, the more we collaborate with others, share etc will make distances small, accessiblity easier. do keep up the good work. thanks and regards, Dr V.Janaki

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
