Each month Family Care Coimbatore hosts seminars throughout the States of Tamil Nadu and Kerala using the medium of power point slide shows, skits, and stories presented by a core group of deaf leaders.
Training classes for deaf women cover various issues of womanhood: their role in Indian society, etiquette and behavior, marriage and motherhood.
Featured Leaders: Venilraj and Ruby
Family Care Coimbatore has helped us find our place in society. I, Venilraj, have been a Family Care volunteer for the last ten years; both I and my wife are deaf. We are actively involved in reaching out to other deaf people in the community. We are blessed with a hearing child, Priya (age 10), who is able to be educated in a regular school.
A decade ago, I was not sure where I would fit into society or what my future would be, as the communication barrier was too wide for me to cross. Through counseling and personality development classes, my wife and I were able to bridge the gap with the world and we have learnt not to look at our deafness as a handicap. Instead, we are challenged to help others and motivate other deaf folks in the same way.
