Deaf Kidz Goal
DeafKidz Goal! is aiming to train a cohort of D/deaf people to become coaches who will themselves deliver life skills programmes to marginalised D/deaf children through the platform of football, delivered in their communication method of choice. It empower D/deaf children to develop their educational potential. A number of D/deaf children will attend a leadership training course to become champions and role models. The project will establish much needed referral pathways for D/deaf children in relation to child protection, ear and hearing care, accommodation, etc. in response to the assessed needs of the beneficiaries.
Project will also foster the integration of D/deaf and hearing children to reduce the stigma/taboo relating to deafness.
