Deaf Development and Information Association

DDIA is a deaf-led national NGO that aims to improve the lives of young deaf people through skills and enterprise training and support. DDP has worked with DDIA on three livelihood initiatives since 2014, the most recent of which has been a 3-year project to enable deaf and hard of hearing (HoH) young adults to learn new skills and develop sustainable and profitable enterprises.

The current programme with DDP has enabled DDIA to engage in work to enhance education for deaf and hard of hearing children in Ethiopian schools.

DDIA are champions and ambassadors of the skills and talents of these young people through the many events and wide publicising they do.
