The only deaf child in his family, Ashraf Mushtaq was very shy and withdrawn as a child. He achieved good grades in school, but always felt lonely, keeping mostly to himself. As a young adult, he enrolled in Deaf Reach Training Program and did exceptionally well, graduating at the top of his class – while still maintaining a rather shy demeanor.

It's not hard to spot Riffat in the classroom - she's the one with the large smile on her face, and one of the most enthusiastic and energetic teachers at Deaf Reach School. Riffat who is deaf herself, is a proud mother of three deaf sons who have been regular students at Deaf Reach School for several years.

"I wish to gain respect and not sympathy," says 14-years old, Yousuf Haider. With beautiful colored eyes and a fair complexion, he appears to be a normal child at first glance. It's when he gets up from his seat to greet you, that you realize that this young boy is deaf.
