Mill Neck wants to be the organization that people will turn to for information and assistance to deaf people in developing countries. We will be paving the way for others through our experience and knowledge in working with partners overseas. As there are approximately 500,000,000 people in the world who are deaf or hard of hearing, it is imperative to team with other NGOs and churches to reach those who need assistance. We will share what we learn with others so every group is not re-creating the wheel
Transparency & Accountability
we have no limits
Our Practices when we work with you
We involve all stakeholders and Deaf representatives from the community in the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of our programs.
We build upon the talent and capacities of professionals who become the experts in their institutions and local regions where they share knowledge and skills they learned.
Training of Trainers
We design time-limited projects with our partners, building their capacity to work independently and adding our partner’s knowledge to Mill Neck’s own.
Asset-Based Community Development
We identify the gifts, resources and solutions within a community to build our partner’s capacity and empower individuals, the community and institutions.
Value Local Sign Languages
We conduct our work in our partner’s native sign language as we understand that it is part of their country’s cultural, social, historical and religious heritage.
Acknowledgement of Deaf Needs
We respect the needs and desires of the Deaf community and will not support projects which marginalizes or oppresses its members.
