The administration of Rwanda National Association of Deaf Women “umucyo” is set to start sms media that will be used to make government programs known to the deaf.

This was revealed by the executive secretary of Rwanda National Association of Deaf Women, Judith Mukamanzi.

Rwanda National Association of Deaf Women “Umucyo” reveals that there are many projects that the government sets up but the deaf do not know about them.

Among the programs the association intends to extend to the deaf are community work, elections, health programs and others, discloses Judith Mukamanzi.

Mukamanzi stresses: “Big companies like MTN and TIGO send messages to every mobile telephone owner whenever they are advertising something.”

The same way is going to be used in extending all government programs to the people with hearing disability.

Sms media will start in Ruhango district since it has a big number of deaf people.

The association for the deaf has started meeting with Ruhango district authorities to sensitize the deaf on learning how to write, count and read the sms they will be receiving.
