JS Academy for the Deaf
JS Academy for the Deaf is a project of the NOOR-E-ALI TRUST & CDGK supported by Mahvash & Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation which is a non-profit organization and has Tax Exemption provision. JS Academy's main aim is to teach the deaf and hearing impaired children to read, write & communicate in their own language which is the Sign Language. We partner with other professionals in the field, collaborate with Government Department dealing with Special Education, conduct research in Sign Language and share our resources with the deaf institutions in the country with a hope of bridging the gap in deaf education and improve the status quo. .
The school has been operational since 2004 and has achieved a very high ranking in providing Quality Education to both deaf boys and girls. The school is professionally managed by a governing body and supervised by the Board of Trustees. The school is officially registered with the Government of Sindh Literacy and Education Department as well as with the Intermediate Board of Education. JS Academy is entirely dependent on charity. In a given year, we serve up to 150 families who have deaf children in their homes. Most of our students are heavily subsidized and assistance is made possible through donations received from caring & generous individuals, philanthropists and Business Organizations in the community
