SDA was established in 1988 with its main concern to look after the hearing impaired (deaf) people. Our activities area spans from curricular and skill training activities to supports and extra-curricular ones, including cultural and developmental initiatives.
Moving from one office location to another, we finally settled and established our office at SNC center in the Blue Area of Islamabad. Here we have tried to establish a community center as well as a learning center for the deaf where they learn different academic courses and enjoy indoor games.
Different conferences and cultural programs are also arranged there. The students also have the access to the internet and a library where an attempt has been made to collect books, CDs and videos related to the deaf community. A commercial business center is also in progress where the deaf people will be given the opportunity to earn their living through composing, designing and printing work.
To excel in our segment, we are in continuous contact with other local and international organizations in order to learn and progress through their experiences and expertise.
From time to time, we also invite dignitaries to our office who are conscious of our cause. Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan was invited as the chief guest to our office in Islamabad to commemorate our 10 years in office, when he very kindly honored us to be our patron-in-Chief.
