MISSION:

Our aim is to help deaf people of our community access to their religion through teachings, lectures and live videos using relevant Sign Languages.

Interpreter is ‘translating’

Here, an interpreter is ‘translating’ teacher’s spoken words into Iranian Sign Language for the deaf audience.   At the same time written information is shown on the screen for further clarification.  The video of both speaker and interpreter  is relayed to deaf Iranian women sitting in a separate hall.

The sign language

Sign Language is crucial to deaf people. Deafness means the person cannot hear anything at all; they are unable to detect sound, even at the highest volume possible. This is compensated by adding text on the display.

HOW SPONSORS CAN HELP:

Money given by sponsors will be used to buy new and up-to-date film recording equipment.  Our current equipment is now old and needs replacing. Moreover, we need DVD Duplicators to produce and distribute recorded programs.  This is where you, as a sponsor, can help by donating money. You can make available Islamic teachings to those thousands of people all over Iran who have very little knowledge of their religion. If we achieve more than our monetary target then we will be able to extend our offer to other languages as well.

Any extra money donated will be spent on hearing aids (which are very expensive in Iran)  food  and clothing and special alarm systems for deaf Iranians.
