China: Project Serve
Project SERVE is a volunteer development initiative to enhance integration between the deaf and hearing, develop character & build capacity for deaf youths aged 18 to 35 years old. Using Service-Learning as pedagogy, Project SERVE aims to empower the deaf in leadership skills while serving a needy community in China as well as to build an understanding of the different culture(s) and sign language(s).
Project SERVE’s greater purpose is to enable and increase the spirit of volunteerism amongst the Singapore and Chinese deaf communities. Eventually, it is to see the deaf serving across nations in spite of their disability. Being a person with special needs does not mean that they cannot be a giver to others.
