|The National Institute for the Deaf (NID) was founded in 1881 as the Doofstommen Instituut. The establishment of the Institute was an answer to a shared dilemma faced by two reverends of the Dutch Reformed Church. Both had Deaf congregants, but no idea how to serve them with the Word of God because they couldnt communicate with them. The Institute was thus established to help Deaf people read and write so that they could read the Bible and also have access to the same rights as the hearing.
Some 138 years after the Doofstommen Instituut opened its doors, having seen many changes in its own history and that of the country it serves, NID has become a private, dynamic, innovative non-profit company.
OUR VISION IS THE HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE FULL POTENTIAL OF PERSONS WITH HEARING LOSS IN SOUTH AFRICA BY RENDERING ESSENTIAL QUALITY SERVICES TO THEM.
