Deaf Child Worldwide is the international development arm of the National Deaf Children’s Society. We are the UK's leading international charity for deaf children in developing countries.

Our vision is a world without barriers for every deaf child and we facilitate work that enables deaf children and young people to be fully included in their family, education and community life.
