try Mystic Planet - The New Age directory of Planet Earth.

Note: Flag next to a link shows what language the website is in. This is sometimes obvious by what country the link is for or the fact that the title is in English. If I feel it may be ambiguous, I have tried to clarify by using a flag. This is done so that people can read sites in the language of their choice.

Deaf education & youth

NDCS. (2007, January 15). Change the quality of life for deaf children in Yerevan. Despite significant improvements in recent years, services for deaf children and their families in Armenia remain very limited. Deaf children often receive a poor education and develop limited language skills. Parents also find it very difficult to communicate with their deaf child. This project aims to address these limitations and provide families with support. Deaf children and their parents will have the opportunity to improve their sign language skills. Parents will also be able to access information on deafness, their child's education and well-being, etc.

Deaf history and current events

DeafToday. (2002, October 22). Deaf youth need information. The 3,500 deaf people officially registered in Armenia do not have a way of receiving news about events that take place in the world because of absence of surdo-translations on the Armenian TV channels.
