Ashoka Fellow
This description of Samy Gamil's work was prepared when Samy Gamil was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Samy Gameel is integrating the deaf and hearing impaired into Egyptian society by equipping them with the tools and training necessary to become competitive in the IT sector. Samy works with educators, employers, government ministries, citizen organizations (COs), and others to ensure the deaf and hearing impaired have a range of professional opportunities free of discrimination and prejudice. His work not only changes public perceptions of those with disabilities, but builds the confidence the deaf and hearing impaired have in themselves.
