Our desire is to build a safe place to house Deaf women and to teach and train them to fully realize their potential as independent and Spirit filled women God created them to be.
After many years of usage, the Deaf men's house needs serious repairs and remodeling. This place is also the home of the only Deaf pastor in our city, Ensenada, Mexico.
Access to education for the Deaf is a constant battle. Only 2% of the Deaf globally receive education in their native sign language. In Mexico, only 0.02% of Deaf people make it to higher education. Let's change this one student at a time!
Discrimination towards the Deaf is a daily occurrence in Mexico, especially within the work force. The lack of access to education leads to less opportunities, which leads to minimum wage jobs, which eventually leads to a lower quality of life. We want to create businesses to hire Deaf people and to provide a livable wage.
The reality is that we live in a hearing world, where everything is made to give access to hearing people. The obstacle here is that Deaf people also need access to medical services, the court system, education, public announcements, church life, emergency information, etc.
If you want to learn about computer programs, you have access to a community college in your language. If you want to learn how to cook, you can find several workshops in your own language in town. If you want to broaden your knowledge of the Bible, you go to a Bible college in your native language. We want to create a space to offer these opportunities and more for the Deaf community.
