How can researchers and organizations improve collaboration with Deaf communities in developing countries? Authors Amy Wilson and Nickson Kakiri share best practices in places such as Brazil. They also jointly studied the perspective of the Kenyan deaf communities on how outside funding institutions can help them. Kenya Deaf community members identified problems of corruption and cultural misunderstanding. Meanwhile, they recommend solutions for how to improve collaboration with Deaf communities.
