What We Do
Hands for Vietnam provides sign language training and resources for Deaf people and their communities in Central Vietnam.
Why We Do It
Hands for Vietnam believes that EVERY DEAF PERSON was CREATED with PURPOSE and VALUE.
The Situation in Vietnam
Historically, deaf people have been viewed as ‘less-than’ in Vietnamese society, often being considered as unintelligent and burdens to their families.
Hands for Vietnam is a non-profit organization that exists to provide sign language training and resources for Deaf people and their communities in Central Vietnam.
Our areas of focus include: early intervention, sign language training, education, sign language interpreter training, raising Deaf awareness, family advocacy, and outreach to the deaf in rural areas.
There are many ways that you can support our work in Vietnam, both financially and even through an in-person visit with us.
We always have needs and opportunities for you to support the important work that we are doing. Click to learn more.
