We are very pleased to announce that we have been able to send out our first funds to help Deaf people in Burundi set up their own businesses. This has been as a result of the hard work of our volunteers at the various fundraising events which we have held over the past year. Also from individual donations that have been made. The funds are to be used as loans for young Deaf people to set up their own businesses and then at the end of the year when the money is repaid we can then pass it on to some one else to start their own business as well. This fantastic project is being run in Burundi by our partner the Association National des Sourds de Burundi (ANSB).
