Kindergarten, primary and secondary education to deaf children and youth, emphasising the learning of sign language.
Christian biblical education to deaf children and youth.
Health and dental services to deaf children and youth.
Training in different technical areas through vocational classes and workshops such as carpentry, beauty parlour techniques, and sewing.
The school also provides several recreational activities and fosters the creativity of children and youth.
The volunteer can help in any of the areas of the school, for example, assisting the teachers in the different classes, assisting in the vocational classes and workshops, do a lot of creative tasks such as decorating, drawing and painting.
Most of the staff members are very religious (mainly Evangelic) and incorporate Christian beliefs into the classes.
