THE STORY:

Mountain 2 Mountain wrote -

Brick by brick we're building a community for the deaf population in Afghanistan. Starting in Kabul with a security wall, a primary school, and a secondary school - each brick further solidifies the importance of a home and a center of learning for the deaf as they work to develop their own culture and place within Afghanistan.

Sponsor a brick for $10 to help build this school. Go further and be a lasting part of the wall - every donation over $20 will have their name painted on the inside of the security as part of a mural by Kabul University art students.

Please spread the word and get involved. It takes a community to build a community! Be part of ours and theirs.


Approximately 10,000 deaf children live in Afghanistan. Most live without any communication with the hearing world.

Mountain2Mountain believes the members of the deaf community in Afghanistan can generate solutions from within. We work with the Afghan National Association for the Deaf (ANAD) to teach qualified teachers to sign.

Thanks to a land donation from the Karzai government in April 2010, plans are underway to break ground in late 2010 for a permanent deaf school in Kabul for ANAD with a teacher training program that will seed future schools in other communities.

We've got an amazing partner with a green technology construction company that will donate the primary school - we just have to raise the money for the secondary school and the security wall. We need your help to build a community and a home for Afghan's deaf!
