“Each human being, however small or weak, has something to bring to humanity. As we start to really get to know others, as we begin to listen to each other's stories, things begin to change. We begin the movement from exclusion to inclusion, from fear to trust, from closedness to openness, from judgment and prejudice to forgiveness and understanding. It is a movement of the heart.”

Our Story

South Africa’s Deaf community currently stands at four million people and counts for approximately 6% of the country’s population. While many advances have been made in terms of recognizing the rights of Deaf people, much of these changes have only reached the level of policy development with poor implementation. As a result, many Deaf people continue to live in isolated worlds and their struggles are silenced due to the lack of resources available to meet their needs. This is especially pronounced in impoverished neighbourhoods where basic needs such as schooling for the Deaf is largely compromised.

This is the context out of which Al-Waagah Institute for the Deaf was established in 1995. Initially focused on religious education, we found that beneficiaries benefitted from the opportunity to interact with each other in sign language, which is not understood by many people within their home environments. Apart from their need for more meaningful social interaction, Al-Waagah also assists with legal services, applying for social grants, Youth activities, support for individuals from other African countries, and poverty alleviation interventions. Al Waagah advocates the right of the Deaf by creating the awareness of their plight and lobbies for access to the following:

· Education in sign language

· Sign language education for the hearing

General information

About Us
History of Al-Waagah

We greet you with the universal greeting of Peace

Al-Waagah, formerly known as Oasis Deaf Society, was established in July 1995.
Initially there were 10 registered Deaf Muslim members.
To date we have approximately 200 registered students from all over Cape Town. At our Madrasah there are a regular attendee tally of ± 100 students.

Prior to the establishment of Al-Waagah the Deaf Muslim community had no choice but to attend schools with a Catholic Ethos for about 80 years. That was the only means of education for the Deaf Muslim community.

Our focus, historically was to establish their Islamic identity and teach them about their religion and how to practice it.

We have since found that there is a bigger need for education, social and other needs among the Deaf community, therefor we are currently working as an advocacy group for The Deaf community of all races and religious persuasion, lobbying and working towards mainstream intergration by achieving these objectives:

• Education in sign language
• Sign language education for the hearing (creating
awareness of the language and improve communication)
• Opportunities to jobs for the majority who does not reach
grade 12
• Access to interpreters in the public space e.g. courts,
government departments etc.
• Access to workshops and lectures
• Access to support groups
• Awareness of Deaf culture
