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 programs under Education, Rehabilitation, Policy advocacy and Capacity Building centers. i) They follow the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) for every needs and capacity of an individual in their respective schools and rehabilitation centers. ii) Career opportunities enabled through their home and center based capacity building training sessions for financial independence. iii) Under collaborative efforts with the Government Sense India has advocated several provisions to be made for the welfare of deafblind people.
  • Outcome: Sense India is working in 22 States of India through a network of 59 partner NGOs currently. 78,000+ deafblind people have been benefited through their programs. 3,709 Para-Medical and Medical Professionals and Caregivers have been trained and sensitized toward deaf blindness through Sense India's Public Engagement workshops.
