POVERTY ALLEVIATION and JOB PLACEMENT

   
  68% of Deaf and hard of hearing people in South Africa maintain an income and subsistence levels of 40%
  lower than their hearing counterparts
   
  The majority of the Association's clientele receive State subsidised social security as their sole source of
  income
   
  The Poverty Alleviation and Job Placement Programme aims to address this need for Deaf persons unable
  to secure employment in the open labour market
