Deaf Children Are Seen As Bad Or A Curse.
Deafness is a disability that is misinterpreted in various ways. In fact, there are certain solutions that could have been done despite the communication difficulties so they could potentially start a conversation. Due to the difficulty of learning sign language, many people ignore children with hearing difficulties. Like anyone without a disability, deaf people also need to communicate. Therefore, efforts must be made so that they can convey their thoughts and emotions just like anyone else.
We provide deaf and hard-of-hearing child-friendly HIV/AIDS awareness and support programs, working in both prevention and healthy living for children and their families. Taasa Orphan Program closely monitors those identified, provides backup and support needed to gain access to drugs and other necessities, and provides training to families and individuals. We have encouraged and enabled the creation of parent support groups, which, equipped with small start-up capital, have successfully introduced income-generating activities, particularly mushroom growing and soap and petroleum jelly making as well as small savings and loans. Some of these groups have now been active for over four years.
