Introduction / History

There are approximately 10,000 Deaf in Czech Republic. There are no completely self-supporting Deafchurches. There is a general feeling of hopelessness and helplessness because of being stuck. Many Deafhave menial jobs because of a lack of adequate trade school opportunities `and/or a lack of trained interpreters to go to higher education. Deaf associations and clubs play an important role in the lives of Czech Deafbecause it is in these groups the Deafare together and can combat oppression, have advocacy and national networking as well as networking with Deafin other countries.

Because sport teams are especially important to Czech Deafso if mission agencies can focus on this sub population you have the potential for reaching the whole population for Christ. Deaf are an egalitarian culture and place a high value on community so outreach efforts should be geared to the whole group. Catholicism is so strong in the Czech Republic and many Czech are cynical and apathetic about Christianity so a special effort needs to be made to reach them in their heart language because there is little clear understanding among Czech deaf. The cults have gone in and the people's hearts are hardened.
