I graduated from the following program in 2009. I feel it can provide a good background in the field for people who want to work with people with disabilities in developing countries to support them in their struggle for human rights and to escape poverty. The most valuable course for me personally was a course in project design that helped me gain more confidence in my ability to evolve a clearly focused project idea and develop it into a cohesive plan of action.

Master of Arts Degree in International Development with Persons with Disabilities

Do you want to work with persons with disabilities in developing countries in ending the discrimination, stigmatization and exclusion they endure in violation of their guaranteed human rights? Imagine yourself becoming the expert to implement policies and practices inclusive of people with disabilities within federal agencies, international organizations and non-governmental organizations and in their overseas development assistance programs?

The Master of Arts degree in International Development at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC focuses on advocating for and with persons with disabilities. The program’s coursework is taught through a transformative lens where political, social and development issues become a means through which ID graduates study topics, such as, the latest global trends and issues concerning disability and development, gender, models of disability, the micropolitics of development, the design of sustainable and effective development projects and programs, and economic development. Your two years of coursework includes a practicum placement at one of several Washington, DC agencies, as well as an internship overseas using the skills you will learn through your coursework at Gallaudet and the international experiences you will be exposed to in our nation’s capitol.

I am working with persons with disabilities in Zambia a country in the Sub Sahara of Africa, and both my parents are disabled – blind to be precise. Further I work with my father in the organization that was founded in 2003. My organization is the blending of Disability HIV/AIDS and Human Rights issues – called Zambia Disability HIV/AIDS Human Rights Programme (ZAMDHARP) which basically advocates the development of policies and programmes that recognize, favor and are implemented with persons with disabilities and cross-cutting disability issues lens or aspect in order to achieve, among others, rights of and equal opportunities for persons with disabilities.

Therefore, how could I be part of the Master of Arts Degree in International Development with Persons with Disabilities at your University? especially that I have no financial backbone to pursue this noble course of study which would eventually help me do much more than I have done now.

Thank you for the information on this program. I will definately have to take a closer look at Gallaudet University. Thanks!

I am a deaf individual (Hearing impaired) man Kenyan i have holder Advocacy/ lobbing skills and counselor I have been used my counseling to counsel both deaf and ordinary people living with HIV/AIDS for 6months. I do believe my skills have been able to change the lives of many but I felt that deaf people were very less educated and society sees them with inferior point of view. Normal people’s life style and society is very high as compared to our deaf society. Normal people get success very fast, but nobody helps us to get success, as a result I feel very bad that deaf people and their family members do not get the proper co-operation from society which they deserve.

That’s why I should how could I be part of the Master of Arts Degree in International Development with Persons with Disabilities at your University? especially however that I have no financial backbone to pursue this noble course of study which would eventually help me do much more than I have done now to The International Deaf-Aid Phone Transparency Initiative with the IMF or IT if you are in true with me, so that the deaf society can benefit as a global campaign to create transparency in the records of how aid money is spent who want to live out to publicly advocate in area of policy, research, and advocacy based to be part of transparency group that use Strategies and non partition coalition for deaf with a shared vision of corrupt free world DUE TO THAT.
