Imagine you are born into a family, into a world, where you cannot communicate. You cannot tell anyone your hopes and dreams or even your nightmares. You will spend your whole life unable to make friends, go to school or earn a living.
Without sign language and an education this is what life is like for Deaf children born into hearing families in the developing world. Deafway is a registered charity giving children and adults in Nepal and Uganda access to sign language and an education - transforming their lives forever.
They say 'charity begins at home' and that's certainly true for us too! Although we have projects in the developing world we were founded in Lancashire. And we still provide a range of specialist services for Deaf people there today!
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Deafway.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
