Welcome to DEAAF, Deaf Education & Arts for African Families

DEAAF, Deaf Education & Arts for African Families, is a not-for-profit organization committed to providing much needed schooling to deaf children within the African continent.

Our goal is to provide education, assist in poverty and hunger alleviation, and encourage the local community and government to become actively involved to ensure deaf children have an educational future that is often taken for granted in more well developed countries.
