The World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) works for the realization of deaf people’s human rights in partnership with the United Nations and its agencies, national organisations of deaf people, and relevant stakeholders. The WFD considers that no deaf person should be denied quality education in sign language and that parents and providers of education should be informed of the importance of bilingual education. The WFD works for an accessible society with no communication barriers, where services and information are available in sign language.
