Deaf protest for education, jobs in Mumbai
More than 150 deaf people protested outside the National Institute for the Hearing Handicapped in Bandra in Mumbai on Sunday.
The protesters demanded courses be accessible for the deaf. They said the existing courses are not helping them to get jobs and are not taught in sign language either.
The government institute only helps in getting disability certificates, therapy or hearing aids.
The protesters want the institute to include vocational courses like mobile repairing and tailoring that can help them get better jobs.
This is the fifth time this year that the deaf from various associations held such a protest against the institute.
