Visions Global – Understanding Deafness in Ethiopia – Daily Discrimination

Posted on 04 April,2017

Discrimination happens even at home. Communication is the solution. Learn to sign and help spread awareness!

This film was made for a 5-part film series on “Understanding Deafness in Ethiopia” using all Deaf actors, a project made possible through Visions Global Empowerment by the generous support of the Dream Blue Foundation.
