What is happening to Deaf People in the Pacific?
- Deaf children still do not have access to education as basic fundamental human rights.
- Very few specialist teachers who could communicate with the Deaf in their own language
- Deaf people struggle to gain access to education, health, recreation, decent housing and employment
- The absence of these fundamental provisions affect their personal, community and cultural development
- Misconceptions and superstitious belief still permeate societal fabric
