#Our Deaf Community

TRANSCRIPT:

95% of Deaf parents have hearing children. Where do they go? Where is their community? A place they can call home?

KODAWEST SUPPORTS KIDS OF DEAF ADULTS WITH RESOURCES AND ITS YEARLY SUMMER CAMP

WHAT IS KODAWEST?
KODAWest is a year-round, non-profit organization that serves hearing children of Deaf parents.
We provide regular events for the kids, parent workshops, the mentorship program and most importantly, our heavy focus is on the camp.

WHAT IS YOUR CAUSE?
The kids needed to understand and embrace their identity as KODAs
To understand how to switch between two cultures, hearing and deaf, within themselves.

And for the Deaf parents, to give them resources and support. At the same time, to celebrate their KODA blended family.

INSPIRATION BEHIND KODAWEST
One day, my youngest daughter’s teacher came to me to let me know that my daughter never talks in class and is always quiet
She said that my daughter signed Mom and asked me what that meant
I realized that my daughter was trying to communicate her needs to those who don’t understand her.

HOW IS KODAWEST PART OF THE COMMUNITY?
KODAWest is 100% volunteer driven.
Fully funded by our community who believe in KW and its mission.
Without you, KW wouldn’t be here today.

THE IMPACT OF KODAWEST
KODAWest Camp has been established for 12 years and served over 1,000 children. Many start at 8 years old and never missed a camp. Now they’ve become KODA staff.

Some of those staff and kids are from around the world.

Becoming life-long friends.

¿QUÉ ES KODAWEST?
KODAWest es una organización sin-fines-de-lucro que funciona todo el año y esta para servir a niños sordos.
Proporcionamos eventos regulares para los niños, seminarios para padres, programa de mentoría y lo más importante, nuestro gran enfoque es en el campamento.

¿CUÁL ES SU CAUSA?
Los niños necesitan comprender y aceptar su identidad como KODA
Para entender cómo cambiar entre dos culturas, oyentes y sordos, dentro de ellos mismos.

Y para los padres sordos, para darles recursos y apoyo. Al mismo tiempo, para celebrar su familia combinada de KODA.

INSPIRACIÓN DETRÁS DE KODAWEST
Un día, la maestra de mi hija menor vino a avisarme que mi hija nunca habla en clase y que siempre está callada
Ella dijo que mi hija hizo la seña Mamá y me preguntó qué significaba eso
Me di cuenta de que mi hija estaba tratando de comunicar sus necesidades a aquellos que no la entendían.

¿CÓMO ESTÁ KODAWEST PARTE DE LA COMUNIDAD?
KODAWest es 100% impulsado por voluntarios.
Totalmente financiado por nuestra comunidad que cree en KW y su misión.
Sin ti, KW no estaría aquí hoy.

EL IMPACTO DE KODAWEST
KODAWest Camp se estableció por 12 años y atendió a más de 1,000 niños. Muchos comienzan a los 8 años y nunca se perdieron de un campamento. Ahora se han convertido en personal de KODA.

Parte de ese personal y niños son de todo el mundo.

Haciéndose amigos de toda-la-vida.
