We provide access to sign language, Spanish literacy, numeracy, and real-life job skills so that deaf Nicaraguans can become contributing members of their society and the Deaf community.

Manos Unidas runs community-based deaf education programs in rural areas of Nicaragua, trains educators at the post-elementary, post-high school, and university levels, and provides vocational opportunities for deaf children and young deaf adults.
