Introduction / History

In the West Bank, the social stigma of being Deaf is a lot less than it once was. Education has improved for Deaf children and when they learn they learn well. Deaf schools are usually funded by NGOs and charities. More well-trained staff is needed.

There are more opportunities for education for the Deaf in Gaza than in the West Bank. The Mustafa Sadeq School gives free education and travelling help for the Deaf in Gaza.

Opportunities for education in primary and secondary schools are improving but university education and finding work is very difficult for the Deaf. Employment chances are improving however and there are now workshops for the Deaf.

Arabic Sign Language is used in Palestine. Islam is the main religion.
