Why I Teach

The passion that I have for my class is that I am able to make a positive impact on the lives of the learners that are within my grasp, that they will be able to make a difference in their country and the wider society. Knowing that I can make a difference in the lives of others really gives me the drive to want to see the learners succeed. For me, teaching is a ministry, and it's the ministry that God has called me into. It gives me a wonderful feeling to know that I am fulfilling my purpose. I see myself as a role model for each learner, and that propels me in wanting to see the Deaf leaners achieve their full potential.

Child sponsorship with the CCCD is such a rewarding experience. It is not often that you are able to touch a life in such a tangible way. Sponsoring a child through CCCD will provide education, lodging, and meals for a child in need. Your monthly gift will allow you to invest in their physical well being, and most importantly, their spiritual well being. Each child receives instruction in Bible and will be taught about God's plan of salvation. Our goal is to secure 10 sponsors per student to help us cover our annual operating expenses (education, room/board, meals, clothing, misc) for your sponsor child.

Yes! You can review all of our available children under the "Students" tab at the top of the website. Then just let us know the name of the child on the online donation page. If you prefer to mail in your request, just let us know the name of the child when you mail in your first payment.

A one year Student sponsorship is $384.00. You can break the payment down the following ways:

  • 1 Annual gift- $384.00
  • 12 Monthly gifts- $32.00 each

A one year Class sponsorship is $600.00. You can break the payment down the following ways:
