DeafTawk has started accepting applications for its online basic sign language course. This is an opportunity for students, professionals and freelancers across the country to learn sign language and create a strong social impact while generating a secondary source of income.

The online sign language program will have 4 modules including Introduction to Sign Language, Foundation of Pakistan Sign Language, Sentences Approaches and Advanced Vocabulary and Experimental Learning. By the end of the course the participants will be able to initiate conversation with the hard of hearing community and will be on their way to further enhance their skills and provide professional sign language services.

Khud Etimadi, the basic sign language course, is the first pillar of our KhudHi Program. The 8-week online course is delivered by nationally-known interpreters with an aim to introduce people to the world of sign language and help them develop their self-confidence. The online classes will be held on weekends and a certificate of completion will be given to participants at the end of the course.

Launched in 2018, DeafTawk is a one of its kind local startup having created an online solution for the connectivity of the deaf community with qualified sign language interpreters, while also working on building capacity of sign language interpreters for quality services.
