Bridging the Gap in Tech Education for Deaf Individuals

Deaf Learn is more than just a learning platform; it’s a revolution in tech education for the Deaf community. Born from Data-Lead Africa’s commitment to bridging the inequality gap in higher education, Deaf Learn empowers Deaf individuals with the skills and support they need to thrive in the tech industry.

Our vision is to create a vibrant and supportive “Deaf-in-Tech” community. Through comprehensive training, mentorship, and guided career pathing, we equip Deaf individuals with the tools for success. We believe that everyone, regardless of hearing ability, deserves the opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute to the tech landscape.

With the generous support of the McArthur Foundation’s $20,000 XGrant, Deaf Learn is driven by a passion to revolutionize Deaf education. Our courses are tailored to the unique needs and preferences of Deaf individuals, ensuring that learning is accessible and engaging.


Learning built for you:
We understand that “one size fits all” doesn’t work for tech education, especially for the Deaf community. That’s why Deaf Learn offers a unique learning experience:

  • Deaf-Native Instruction: Beyond subtitles – our courses are taught in Sign Language (ASL), the natural language of Deaf individuals. This fosters deeper understanding, engagement, and confidence.
  • Tech-Focused Curriculum: We don’t waste your time. Deaf Learn specializes in high-demand tech skills, currently offering beginner to expert courses in Java, SQL, and C++. More exciting tracks are on the way!
  • Holistic Career Pathing: Learning extends beyond the screen. We connect trainees with experienced mentors for guidance, networking opportunities, and career readiness support, setting them up for success in the tech workforce.
    At Deaf Learn, we believe in the power of potential. We open doors, break barriers, and empower Deaf individuals to achieve their dreams in the tech world.


Start learning today, grow, and become the change you want to see.
