The Advocacy Center empowers individuals with Hearing Impairment and their
families to advocate for themselves and realize their personal goals.  Together
we build strong, inclusive communities by increasing the ability of community

The Advocacy Center empowers individuals with Hearing Impairment and their
families to advocate for themselves and realize their personal goals.  Together
we build strong, inclusive communities by increasing the ability of community
members to support and value Deaf and all individuals equally.
Through information-sharing, individual advocacy support, independent service
coordination and educational workshops, we advance people's knowledge of
resources and help them build life-long advocacy skills. Our leadership
development programs help individuals, parents, and families to create positive
change in the community by influencing public policy, supporting others with their
advocacy issues, and promoting community inclusion and acceptance of
individuals with hearing impairment. Our professional development workshops
support organizations and inter-governmental bodies in their work. Together, we
are creating a world that works for everyone.

The Advocacy Center will assists organizations and governmental bodies in
developing programs for primary ear and hearing care that are integrated into the
primary health-care system of the country. The Advocacy Center work includes:
  • encouraging and guiding Governments in developing and implementing
    national plans for primary ear and hearing care;
  • providing technical resources and guidance for training of health-care
    workers on primary ear and hearing care;
  • developing and disseminating guidelines to address the major
    preventable causes of hearing loss;
  • raising awareness about the level, causes and impact of hearing loss as
    well as the opportunities for prevention, identification and management;
  • collating data on deafness and hearing loss to demonstrate the scale and
    the impact of the problem; and
  • promoting social inclusion of people with hearing loss and deafness, for
    example through community-based rehabilitation networks and programs.
MUTE International Studies Center is dedicated to providing the most
comprehensive, challenging, and productive philosophy, psychology and social
studies of Deafness, hearing loss, and MUTE people anywhere in the world,
with particular reference to Deaf People civic rights and involvement in decision
making.

MUTE International Studies Center is not a study of Deaf; it is a study of
Hearing peers, i.e. us. We are deaf; we are hearing; we are old; we are young;
we are from every corner and part of world. We are richly diverse in our
backgrounds, our interests, our abilities and disabilities --but we are one in the
pursuit of excellence in education and the equalization of opportunities for all
people.

MUTE International Studies Center will broaden and enrich our knowledge on
the most basic elements of our humanity ... language, culture and society.

In addition to conduct studies, we aim to equip parents of Deaf children, and
the greater Deaf community with the necessary knowledge and skills to foster
equal opportunities for the Deaf Community.

MUTE International Studies Center demands to echo the objective of Wits: to
use all its assets - both human and physical - to serve the intellectual,
professional and educational needs of the Deaf Community and societies in
general.

The Center seeks to deepen and reinforce development concepts by offering
theoretical and conceptual frameworks that places Deaf people at the center of
the development process.

The Center carries out research studies and organizes special seminars,
conferences, symposiums and workshops to prompt informed debate on
matters relating to Deaf, Deafness and development.

The Center coordinates a wide range of events in a variety of disciplines
ranging from Deaf history, civic rights and culture to education, health, and
economy.

The Center Objectives are to:
  • Promote and support innovative research and studies to better
    understand issues confronting the Deaf community and identify ways to
    cope with and resolve these challenges.
  • Promote interdisciplinary research across the boundaries of education,
    social, health, technology, and public policy.
  • Facilitate deep understanding of the values, thinking, practices, and
    aspirations of the Deaf diverse cultures.
  • Provide an institutional framework within which all development-related
    issues can be considered, researched and discussed with a view of
    providing practical guidance and assistance to the relevant decision
    makers.
  • Develop professional training opportunities and public programs in
    Deaf studies for researchers, educators, students, media,
    governmental agencies, civic organizations, and all members of the
    public concerned with understanding and solving Deaf problems.
