Deaf Reach is a program of Family Educational Services Foundation (FESF) a non-profit educational organization active in Pakistan since 1984.
We aim to change the fact that less than 5% of 1.25 million Deaf children in Pakistan have access to education.
We challenge the notion that the deaf are ‘disabled’. The Deaf are as smart, intelligent and as full of potential as their hearing counterparts.
We provide the necessary language tools so that Deaf children can effectively communicate with their parents and teachers
FESF has been awarded UN ECOSOC Consultative status since 2014.
FESF is setup under a license from Securities Exchange Commission of Pakistan under section 42 of the Company Ordinance,1984. Approved U/S2(36) of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001, read with rule 212 of the income rules, 2002. Our accounts are audited by Haroon Zakaria & Co.
