My personal vision for my life is to make positive impact in the society I find myself in at any particular time, to share love and to live a purposeful life .at the moment my vision is to improve and empower the Deaf in the society through expansion of skills, knowledge and information .to see that the deaf are not alienated with what is happening around them and that they are confident enough to participate in matters of development. To ensure that the Deaf woman can enjoy her life as a woman, as a mother, as a sister, as a daughter and as a citizen .to make her realize and tap the potential that lies inside here and to strengthen her voice and share her beauty with the world without fear of discrimination .
In Skills: improve on the existing skills among the deaf person and also train on new skills that they can use to improve their lives economically as well as socially e.g. embroidery, beadwork, design ,new farming methods etc depending with individuals capability and desire In Knowledge: to encourage Deaf person to access higher learning education to choose and specialize on a certain field and also be in a position to access employment in the formal sector In Access to Information: to sensitize the media especially the television on the need of reaching to the Deaf either by use of an interpreter or incorporate a deaf person.
By being a voice of our correspondent I will be in a position to sensitize the world what is happening around them and especially in the deaf world, I will be able to create awareness and trigger action not only with the Kenyan deaf but in the whole world where we have the deaf person .I will also be in a position to link the Deaf person with other Deaf person and organization in the world and create a platform where experiences ,challenges and success can be discussed and come up with sustainable solution to the their challenges . Lastly and most important I will be able to learn new method and approaches from other experienced persons ways that have worked for other countries and groups and ways that are likely to work for the current situation .
Take action! This post was submitted in response to Voices of Our Future Application: Your Vision.
