Inspiration

From what we know and have been told in the interview, these activities are not the end of their action, because they make up a larger activity. The reason for its foundation: Help your neighbor, through the creation of positive impacts on people's lives, even for those who are in support of this cause, directly and indirectly. But if it's an institution with the interest of community service, how can it be merged into a business? Simple, growing in quantity and community, they decided to open a school, this project began in 2006, where they teach normal classes through sign language.

His mission is to "deafen an accessible and formal language and education, using both Mexican sign language and written language, based on the word of God, in order to develop the character and identity proper to each student as a deaf person, a Mexican, a citizen of the world." And his aspiration to arrive "To be an institution that allows the development of autonomy in people with deafness, allowing equality for deaf people in [the] society around the world, for the sign language in Mexico to be a primary communication in order to be able to have access to all the opportunities and options that young people without disabilities have."
