Networking Academy Brings Career Prospects and Hope to Deaf Students in Africa

Nor can you go to school, see a doctor, get a job, or make friends. You are alone, with little hope that your life will ever change. Now, imagine being able to personally help teenagers like this, without even leaving your office building.
