Deaf of Somalia

Introduction / History
In Somalia, Deaf children have often been ignored and the Deaf have not been too well thought of by some others. The Somalia troubles have made things difficult. It has been difficult for Deaf schools financially and also for the Deaf to find work. The Deaf have been restricted from driving too.

There have been recent improvements. There is more stability in Somalia than before. The Somali National Association for the Deaf along with Deaf Unity U.K. have a training program for Deaf leaders and some have been trained. The Deaf in Somalia need trained teachers and good education.

Most of the Deaf in Somalia live in the capital Mogadishu. Somali Sign Language is used which has its origins from Kenyan Sign Language.

Prayer Points
* Pray for more trained Deaf teachers in Somalia and also for some of them to be Christians who will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the troubles they have experienced will lead them to salvation too.
