Deaf Education Centers


Majuro Deaf Education Center

History:
The idea for a Deaf Education Center started with the belief that Deaf students prosper when they are in a highly visual environment where everyone uses sign language. A few years ago, the first Deaf volunteer, Daniel DiDonna, came to Majuro as a Gallaudet summer intern.  During his internship, he met WorldTeach volunteers who shared the same passion and that laid the groundwork that eventually led to Deaf WorldTeach and the establishment of the Deaf Education Center—a place where every deaf student grows. Gallaudet University collaborated with WorldTeach and established the Pacific Deaf WorldTeach program. For the past two years, Deaf WorldTeach volunteers have come to Majuro to teach Deaf students. They have made an immense impact on the education, employment, and human rights of Deaf people in the Marshall Islands.
