We're committed to the documentation of Nigerian Sign Language and the Deaf population. We currently collect signed language and Deaf demographic data across Nigerian Deaf community


We advocate for a Deaf inclusive African society, which includes the implementation of Newborn Hearing Screening and Early Intervention Program (NBHS/EI) in Nigeria and other African countries.


We provide interpreting services for deaf individuals and groups, families and corporate bodies. We train signed language Interpreters and promote the use of indigenous signed language.

Save the Deaf and Endangered Languages Initiative (S-DELI)

We are a research-based non-governmental organization, documenting indigenous sign languages across the world, starting with Nigeria. We provide early access to sign language through our Indigenous Hands (iHands) platform. Deaf children who have limited access to sign language are linguistically and culturally marginalized and sometimes do not develop the linguistic and cognitive skills needed for their educational and socioeconomic mandate. We document indigenous sign languages across the world and provide a platform for deaf literacy and the codification of indigenous sign languages.

We Collaborate.
We Engage.
