Every day thousands of children in Africa wander the streets in isolation. Instead of learning to read, write and interact, they’re struggling to teach themselves how to survive in a world of quiet desperation.
These children are deaf.
And they need a voice.
There are more than 400,000 deaf people in Ghana, West Africa—some due to heredity, others to disease. In a country of nearly 22 million, that’s two percent of the population.
In villages throughout the country, deaf children are left without hope for an education. While families are forced to choose between eating or paying school fees, many eager children miss their opportunity to learn. A cycle of loneliness and self-doubt ensues.
With your help, Signs of Hope International can break the cycle. Help us give the deaf a voice by giving them an education. This singular act has the power to dramatically change lives.
Because education changes everything.
