More Deaf Ethiopians are attending school or becoming teachers. Also, a small group of Deaf youth in Ethiopia are receiving vocational training. Visions Global Empowerment is working with local Deaf leaders to create these changes. They also are partnering with US-based universities to plan learning trips to Ethiopia. Their report explains the many challenges that Deaf Ethiopians experience. For example, they cannot access basic information and services, education, employment, or communication. The report also explains how Visions Global Empowerment is helping.

The organization Visions Global Empowerment published this report in 2014. This PDF file is partly accessible for people using screen reading software. But they may experience some difficulty. For example, the file does not use bookmarks or say its natural language.
