Deafness, the hidden disability

Deaf for d/Deaf Volunteering

VoluntEars is a specialised organisation that arranges trips to Nepal, Sri Lanka and Ghana for D/deaf, hearing and hard-of-hearing people. You can read about them here:

What they say:

All trips are an amazing mix of volunteering at a local Deaf school where we do some simple renovation work like painting dormitories or classrooms and doing activities with the local deaf students. We also visit all the local sights like huge markets selling tropical fruits and veg, ancient Hindu and Buddhist temples, do a cooking class to learn how to make local foo and  a local sign language class, in Sri Lanka.


work with sea turtles on a beach for 1 day and visit an elephant orphanage, in Nepal
do a 3- day trek in the Himalayan mountains.
and, also get time to relax!

All our trips are accompanied by experienced BSL Communicators to enable smooth communication throughout every trip.

Who are our volunteers?

Our volunteers are a mix of D/deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing people who are connected to the deaf community.

We welcome all ages; from people at school, college or university to people taking a short break from their career and older people looking for an overseas trip with a difference.

Who benefits from our trips?

Volunteers gain huge confidence from working in a group with other D/deaf and hard-of-hearing people while exploring a stunning new country. Equally, we work hard to ensure the local Deaf school benefits from our work
