Deafblind children and adults are often invisible. They are often mistaken as emotionally or intellectually challenged. In some rural parts of India, they are even branded as a curse from the gods.
Sense India has been working with deafblind people in India, like Sneha, since 1997.
Working in 23 states through a network of 57 partner NGOs, it affects the lives of more than 71,500 deafblind people, taking them from isolation and neglect to communication, interaction, self-esteem and self-sufficiency.
Sense helps families stay together by giving them skills to communicate, helps society and families recognise that deafblind children and young adults are much more than their disabilities and when given access to the right resources, can be contributing members of society and the economy.
Sense seeks to break taboos and ignorance around deafblindness and wants to reach out to many more of the half a million deafblind population in India. ____________ Help Sense India educate 150 more deafblind children like Sneha in the video at http://www.globalgiving.co.uk/project...
