OUR PEOPLE

NID serves persons with hearing loss from all across South Africa and Africa. Our beneficiaries are unique individuals with varying cultural and social backgrounds.

Persons with hearing loss are a diverse group with the following distinct groups:

  • Pre-lingual (before acquisition of language: These persons see themselves mainly as a linguistic and cultural minority group. They use the capital letter D to indicate Deaf, referring to persons whose primary communication medium is Sign Language and who feel at home in a Deaf culture.
  • Post-lingual (after acquisition of language): Persons who experience different degrees of hearing loss later in life.Deaf-blind: Persons with both sight disability and hearing loss. Deaf-blindness is seen as a disability separate form deafness and blindness.

They are served by an exceptional team of specialised training, care and operational staff members. These people have a passion for helping each of the beneficiaries unlock their full potential and live a life of abundance.
