DeafSkills: go first!

What is that – DeafSkills?

That is professional skills competitions for the Deaf. There are common Abilympics contests that have already existed and in which disabled people of all categories have been participated. But, nevertheless, such an international movement as Abilympics involves too little Deaf. In Russia, Deaf participate in Abilympics contests more intensively than Deaf of other countries in their ones. Many Deaf abroad haven’t even heard about Abilympics.

Due to reverse this trend, the stand-alone organization of DeafSkills was established.

In December 2015, Moscow hosted the representatives of four countries – Belarus, Moldova, Armenia, Russia. President of the World Federation of the Deaf Colin Allen also arrived there. They all participated in the foundation conference for the new DeafSkills organization.
