Welcome To Deaf Zimbabwe Trust.

Welcome to Deaf Zimbabwe Trust

Deaf Zimbabwe Trust is a voluntary organization that promotes the rights and interest of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) people in Zimbabwe. Deaf Zimbabwe Trust was formed and registered as a trust in 2012 and began operations in 2013. Initially the organisation was formed to advance the rights of Deaf children. After wide consultation, the leadership of DZT realised that Deaf adults had a lot of challenges and very little was being done to help them achieve their potential. As a result of this realisation, Deaf Zimbabwe Trust reconfigured its activities to include all the Deaf in Zimbabwe. Deaf Zimbabwe Trust is registered as a Trust.

Our Mission

An inclusive society which respects diversity where all Deaf and Hard of Hearing people enjoy equal rights & choices, opportunities, dignity and independence.

DZT advocates for the right to quality education for children who are Deaf. Educational outcomes of deaf children are poor as a result of a number of factors such as language barriers, lack of appropriate accommodations etc.

Deaf Zimbabwe Trust ensures that all its interventions are evidence based through research. In addition, research findings and all DZT work needs to be communicated in formats that are accessible to the Deaf and hearing community.
