Deaf Empowerment Society of Kenya (DESK) is a registered Non-Government, Non-Partisan and not-for-profit Organization for Deaf persons in Kenya. DESK was established due to discrimination and prejudice against deaf persons in Kenya. DESK established itself with the goal of equally supporting Deaf persons across the nation to improve their standard of living. This support is in terms of human rights advocacy, education and training, political, social and econmomic empowerment.

Finally we are here. Online. It may have taken us a while but we had to get here at last. This is because we have a lot to do and share with you. And we hope that we all have a common goal and that is to make this world a better place for everyone to live.
