The organisation was established in 2003 with a commitment to help individuals who are Deaf. A group of successful philanthropic businessmen came together and laid the foundation of work for the Deaf by establishing the Bajaj Institute of Learning, Dehradun, 1999. Their dedicated attempt was to empower the Deaf and provide a platform for their education and overall development and work towards their empowerment. Among the different disabilities, the problem of the Deaf was the most neglected. There are over 6 lacs NGOs in India working in diverse fields and less than 0.1% of these support the cause of the Deaf.
With this need in mind DEEDS was formed to work for the Deaf towards their upliftment and emancipation in society.
