Uganda National Association of the Deaf (UNAD) is a duly registered organization that represents all the deaf communities in Uganda. UNAD’s vision is dignity for every deaf person. UNAD exists to raise awareness, promote sign language, advocate for the rights of deaf persons and building their capacities. 

UNAD established a vocational training and resource center where UNAD conducts training in vocational trades including sign language and business management. The center contributes to the alleviation of social and economic challenges faced by the deaf. Technical and business training enhances the ability of deaf persons to start their own business and to improve on the already existing ones. The Centre is fully registered with the Directorate of Industrial Training. Although, the center primarily targets the deaf community and hearing persons, about 90% of the beneficiaries are deaf people.
