The mission of the Philippine Association of Interpreters for Deaf Empowerment (PAIDE) is
to provide quality and accurate sign language interpretation in all transactions involving
Deaf persons. We shall accomplish this Mission by means of training highly effective and
capable sign language interpreters that would break the language barrier existing between the
Hearing and the Deaf.
It shall serve as a National Agency serving the Deaf community in the Philippines in
general and the various sectors empowering the Deaf community in particular.
Sign Language Training Objectives:
- To increase the quality of sign language services for the Deaf through intensive
training, clear innovative teaching methodologies and concise practice of code of ethics
in various fields of interpreting services.
- To assist people providing the services to have a meaningful session with the Deaf so
as to reach the highest percentage possible in providing accurate information to the Deaf
clientele and even at times to the interest of the Hearing public as well.
- To propagate to the Hearing community the importance of deaf culture so as to
strengthen their accessibility in the mainstream of society and lobby for their legal
rights so they will be of equal footing with their Hearing counterparts.
