Promise Mensah - Our Talking Hands - Supporting the Deaf in Ghana

Promise Mensah


My name is Promise Navina Mensah. I am 27 years old. I come from Ho in the Volta Region. I am a proud Ghanaian and the Co-Founder of Our Talking Hands I am very happy to be working with the deaf. My aim is to help by giving employment to the deaf and to bring the hearing and deaf closer together. In Ghanaian society the deaf are isolated. Our aim is to help improve education opportunities for the deaf and to offer sustained employment upon completion of school.

I have found great happiness working with the deaf, as it has given me the opportunity to learn sign language. I am still practicing, but I enjoy working with the students. The students have proven to be wonderful teachers and continue to impress me with their abilities.
