The Deaf Unit in Cairo, Egypt teaches deaf primary school students. Almost half the teachers are deaf, while the rest are hearing. Meanwhile, the students learn Egyptian Sign Language, Arabic and English. The school also teaches sign language to parents, families, and communities. As a result, deaf students are able to communicate better at home. To help deaf people outside of Cairo, the Deaf Unit in Egypt coordinates a community-based program in rural Egypt. The program reaches families and staff to educate them about deafness.

The website is partly accessible for people using screen reading software.
