Volunteer

There are 18 million deaf in India and only 0.1% of them get access to education in sign language. Being the country with the largest deaf population in the word, there is much that needs to be done for our deaf brethren. Atulyakala is a small step which was taken a few years ago to  bridge the gap between the hearing and the deaf communities. We strived to empower deaf through design and today, Atulyakala is known as India's first lifestyle brand run by deaf artists. Now, we need you to join the movement. The power of a movement depends on the people who fuel it. Let's join hands and become #Humansofsign to spread awareness about Indian Sign Language and deaf culture all across the world.
