We embrace diversity and respond to individual need.
  • Crisis: Back in 1997, there was only one school in India providing education and other services to 23 deafblind children, in a country where there are an estimated 500,000 children and adults with a multi-sensory disability. To address this dire need, Sense International India was established as the first national NGO in India to support the development of comprehensive services and training for deafblind people
  • Programs: Sense International has their programs spread in Education, Rehabilitation, Policy advocacy and they also have Capacity Building centres to address information gaps & requirements and develop learnng material accordingly for diabled children, their parents and teachers repectively. They follow the Individualised Educational Plan (IEP), a strategy that recognises each child as having unique abilities and supports an educational plan that is developed around the needs and capacity of that child.
  • Outcome: Currently Sense India is working in 22 States of India through a network of 59 partner NGOs. Our work is transforming the lives of more than 78,000+ deafblind people- from isolation and neglect to communication, interaction and self-esteem.
