The Swiss support committee for Eritrea (SUKE e. V.) supports two institutions for deaf & hard hearing children and youth. They are the only existing in Eritrea, a boarding school in Keren and a day school in Asmara. The day school with integrated kindergarten prepares the children for entry into the state junior school.

SUKE supports these schools while covering the wages of teachers, staffs and accommodation for the children. With the financial help it is possible that children can attend school from all over Eritrea.
