“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.”
- Jean Vanier
“Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness.
It is the key to growth.”

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
