Resume:

Projektet er et trebenet samarbejde ml. CICED og de to hovedaktører indenfor døve og tegnsprogstolkning i Tanzania; døveforeningen CHAVITA og tegnsprogstolkeforeningen TASLI. Igennem 2 år vil organisationerne få styrket deres kapacitet og samarbejde, for at stå stærkere i deres fælles mål; inklusion af døve i samfundet. Derudover vil organisationernes resourcer og kompetencer blive styrket, ved en videre opkvalificering af TASLIs tolke og give CHAVITA et taskforce af døve undervisere, der gennem et år vil udbrede kendskabet til tegnsprog. Projektet vil sideløbende nedsætte et udvalg der har til opgave at kortlægge en ramme for en evt. nationalt anerkendt tegnsprogstolkeuddannelse, samt søsætte en awareness kampagne om døve, tegnsprog og tolkning.
