Who we are

Deaf Link Uganda (DLU) was founded in October 2007 by Nassozi B. Kiyaga. The organisation began as a Community Based Organisation (CBO) working with deaf and hard of hearing people within the Central region. In 2017 it was upgraded to a non-government organisation to widen its reach-out services to a wider population Deaf people in Uganda. DLU focuses on the social model of Deafness, recognising the uniqueness and potentials of each individual. Intervention programmes aim to promote access to education, employment, social integration and cultural development, working with the Deaf to overcome barriers that impede their growth and development. In uplifting the lives of Deaf individuals, we uphold our Mission and Vision, celebrating our Human Diversity.
