Mozambique country report
The Finnish Association of the Deaf supported us in setting up the deaf association in 1990. Before that there were few interpreters working in Mozambique. The situation is difficult because there is no training in sign language or in interpreting. Many deaf persons have received oral education.
In 2000 the interpreter association was established and currently there are 15 interpreters working. The aim of our association is to get a higher education for sign langauge interpreters.
