WHO WE ARE
The National Institute for the Deaf (NID) is the only facility in South Africa and Africa that provides services to Deaf people and persons with hearing loss of all ages.
We offer specialised care, education and training to empower and restore human dignity.
WHERE WE COME FROM
The dire need for educating the Deaf so that they can read the Bible, understand the message of salvation and be able to accept Christ, led to the birth of the Doofstommen Instituut in 1881 which later became the National Institute for the Deaf.
