Iceland’s Communication Centre for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (SHH) will support a similar organisation in the African nation of Namibia. The SHH will support the government and authorities of Namibia to help develop a special institution to help the hearing impaired. The Icelandic International Development Agency (Iceida) has signed an agreement with the SHH to support the project.
The SHH of Iceland has been involved in a number of various activities in Namibia, such as teaching sign language to deaf children in the African nation. The main goal of this project and agreement is to improve and develop education for deaf children and build a similar organisation in Namibia to that which already exists in Iceland.
