Banking services are predominantly offered and communicated through spoken language, leaving the Deaf community feeling disempowered as they often have to rely on and disclose personal information to the people around them to help them communicate with Bank staff.

This #InternationalWeekoftheDeaf, we celebrate our intrapreneurs, Rajesh Manoharan and Nandhini C, who have been exploring and validating their intrapreneur idea 💡 Deaf Friendly Banking, to provide accessible financial services to the Deaf community so they can bank independently! Find out more about the challenges the Deaf community face, and how Deaf Friendly Banking can bridge the gap between spoken language and Sign language for our deaf communities.
