Father Roberts School For the Deaf, Sehaileh

New desks, chairs and other classroom materials

Founded in 1966 by Father Ronald Roberts, the school’s mission is to provide education, training and support for hearing-impaired children. The institute empowers children who suffer from hearing deficiencies through education and training and offers income generation projects that allow students to become productive members in society.

Out of the 110 children, 50 who either belong to poor families or commute from remote villages, live fully at the expense of the institution where they are provided with food, shelter, medical care, specialized academic and/or technical education and support.

The school was in need of better materials and equipment to support education and speech therapy for these students. Additionally, new furniture was needed for classrooms furnished with decrepit desks and tables.
