ABSA SChool & College for the Deaf
ABSA School & College for Deaf was established in 1967. It is a non government charitable organization run entirely on donations from philanthropic organizations and caring individuals, with no help from the Government or any Government affiliated organizations.
No Admission Fee or Tuition Fee is Charged from the Students.
However, donation of only Rs.100/- per month is collected from each student, whereas the average monthly expenditure per student amounts to nearly Rs.3,200/- or Rs.38,000/- per year which changes with inflation. The institute’s running cost during the year ended June 30, 2014 was Rs. 11.592 million. We can provide you with a copy of auditor’s annual report upon request.
There are about 300 students (Boys & Girls) in our institution getting education from Nursery to B.A level.
Besides academic education, ABSA also provides vocational training in:
- Tailoring and Embroidery
- Computer with established lab equipment having latest versions of PCs
- Student sign language classes
- Parents or household member sign language classes (Mandatory so the students can communicate at home too)
- Ongoing research program for sign language which has produced 2 editions of the first Sign Language Dictionary in Pakistan together with eight other Sign Language books
- Baking & cooking.
We sincerely hope that you will support our institution with a generous donation towards this noble cause, or by sponsoring one or more students for one or more years at the rate of Rs.38,000/- per student per year.
