Deafbind project aims at reducing vulnerability for persons with Deafblindness in Rwanda, making local and national government to recognize Deafblindness as a separate distinct disability and to also get the society to be more aware about people with Deafblindness.

This project is patterned with 3 disability organizations namely Rwanda Union of the Blind (RUB), Rwanda National Union of the Deaf (RNUD) and Rwanda National Association of the Deaf Women (RNADW) . This was done after realizing that there is no organization for people with deafblindness in Rwanda. The project is sponsored by the Swedish Federation of the Deaf Blind (SFDB).
