Deaf Zimbabwe Trust joins the global Deaf community in commemorating the International Week for the Deaf running from the 19th to the 25th of September under the theme "With Sign Language, I am equal". The theme draws attention to Sign Language as a vehicle through which the Deaf can fully participate as citizens equal to all. 

This year’s commemoration comes at a time when Sign Language is increasingly taking centre stage in Deaf issues globally. Most notable is the move by the Deaf community in South Africa to take to the streets in peaceful protest to have Sign Language recognised as one of South Africa’s official languages.

About The Organization

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.
