Founder and Executive Director, FESF
Richard Geary has lived full-time in Pakistan for the last 28 years, is founder of the Deaf Reach Program, and CEO of Family Educational Services Foundation (FESF).
There are more than 1.25 million deaf children in Pakistan, yet less than 5% of these have access to education.
Richard and his team are working to change this paradigm via the creation of innovative digital and communication technologies, enabling unprecedented access to learning resources for 1000’s of children who would otherwise be neglected – especially in rural areas where educational opportunities are extremely limited.
Their ground-breaking work resulted in the first ever digital online Pakistan Sign Language Dictionary containing over 5,000 words, and available free of cost nationwide. They also created PSL Stories, the IQRA Literacy Program, and other digital learning resources – all of which can be accessed at: http://psl.org.pk
