Underemployment and unemployment are major issues for those in the deaf community. Shireen Hafeez and the crew over at deafkidscode.org are looking to make an impact on that situation.
Like many passionate advocates, her life was directly affected by deafness. After her son was diagnosed with Sensorineural Hearing Loss, her awareness grew. And as her awareness grew, so did her passion to help make a change. As is many times the case when you start addressing a need that can use extra support, her local grass-roots effort has bloomed into a national non-profit.
