An Ethiopian project is helping Deaf women gain empowerment. The women are starting their own businesses and becoming leaders. The same project also helps raise deaf awareness in their families and communities. A cross-disability organization, Ethiopian Women with Disabilities National Association (EWDNA), coordinates the project.
