- DEF has been helping deaf persons to get placed in various jobs. From working in the shop floor to white-collar computer jobs at large companies, these jobs are at different levels. Deaf persons are also involved in performing back end operations in Call Centers, participating in both online and offline (non-voice) operational procedures, retails, backend works and as office assistants. This has provided a boost not just to our Computer Training Centers but has also motivated our deaf students.

My family encouraged me to learn and DEF provided me skills on Computer, English and much more. After my training, I was placed at MAL. I supply Petrol.

Practically every skill that I would need to take up a job and lead a fulfilled life. My job trials were difficult as most of the employers were not ready to employ the Hearing Impaired After many unsuccessful attempts, in 2016, I finally got a job at Synchrony Finance BPO in the non-voice process. I am happy and thankful Deaf Enabled Foundation.
