The Deafness Awareness Programme targets hearing adults and children in order to create an awareness
  of Deafness, to facilitate an acceptance, integration and socialisation of Deaf people into the "hearing
  world" therefore bridging the gap between the Deaf and hearing communities
  Other aims are to highlight the abilities of Deaf people, eradicate stereotypes and motivate hearing people to learn sign language
  The targeted groups include the Government sector, mainstream schools, primary health care, clinics, children's homes etc.
