My association with Sense International started more than 10 years ago when they hired the selfless leader Akhil Paul as their Director for India. I applaud him and his team for doing what they do everyday and give their lives for the well-being and education of the children that they help become part of our community.

The sad world that we live in still looks at disability as a nuisance and these children with multiple disabilities go through tough times to finally get help from associations like Sense International. If you ever get the opportunity, my recommendation would be to visit these children. For no fault of theirs, they are born with these disabilities. Me and my wife believe that all of us should be thankful for all the blessings we each have and help these children.

Once again, can't thank Akhil Paul and his team for doing for what they are doing.
Regards,
Javid Baig

First of all let me say that I have never seen a selfless organization than Sense International. The entire management team is hands on and experts in working with children who have multiple dis-abilities. The team at Sense International works with children who are deaf and blind. By helping these children to become self-reliant these saintly folks are giving life to them. When i have heard stories from Akhil Paul, Director of Sense International in Asia i have cried. Stories were children were found in villages who have never been out of the hut they live in shunned by society. The only person who would interact with them were their mothers. I applaud Akhil and his team for being the light in the lives of such needy children. I urge each and every one of you to open your heart and contribute to this great cause. You can reach me at javidbaig@gmail.com if you have any further questions or clarifications. Thank you Akhil and your team for doing this and helping the world to be a better place.

The Great!

I had the opportunity of coming in contact with Sense International India fourteen years back, just few months after I joined this field. I had worked very closely with them. I have seen how they are transforming the lives of Deafblind people with or without additional disabilities in all parts of the country especially working for the forgotten people of rural India. They have been highly successful in bringing this population from isolation to inclusion. I feel so overwhelmed and touched when I visit their programs even in the remotest part and see how the children are provided services at their doorstep by young committed educators and brightening the lives of these children, improving their quality of life and making their parents smile. My salute to Mr Akhil Paul and his outstanding team for their noble contribution to this field. And they have MILES TO GO..............

In my position of treasure of Deafblind International I had the possibility to have intensive contact with my colleagues of Sense International India over many years. Last year (November 2012) I had the oppertunity to visit different of there projects in different places in India by myself and to write a report about my visit. This report is published in the magazine of Deafblind International (number 51, July 2013). The strategy of Sense India to focuson partnerships to develop services for deafblind individuals is with any doubt very succesful. Very, very few organisatioans I know worldwide are able to work so cost effective as Sense India is managing to do. Very dedicated and skilled colleagues managed to reach more than 50.000 deafblind individuals in 15 year and as I have seen by myself to really change their lives. I can only express my desire that they will be able to reach many more of the deafblind individuals still waiting for any support.

I worked with Sense international (India) for more than two years and I must say that i have witnessed positive changes coming in lives of individuals and their families, while being a part of its program. Apart from this, I also experienced tremendous growth in my knowledge about deaf blind people. They make sure that each employee understand about this condition, so that they can bring out the best in whatever they do, be it designing a program or training parents or special educators. This makes them the one of the most credible organization that delivers what they intend to. Regular trainings and other educational interventions of their staff, consultants and partner organizations is their key to remain connected and updated about the new researches of the field. Being the only national level organization working on and for this issue, with commendable dedication and enthusiasm, Sense International is surely a bona fide pioneer of its field.

Sense International is a great team doing some amazing work in an area that most people know or understand little about. I have been fortunate in having come in touch with team members like Akhil Paul and Zamir Dhale and feel humbled by the experience.

Sense International has been really making a great move towards uplifting the deaf-blind children. They have transformed the lives of people across India and helped them feel special irrespective of their disabilities. The young & motivating team of Sense International has been taking various initiatives to promote awareness in people to come forward and extend a helping hand for these children. I really feel honored that I got an opportunity to do something for the wellness of society and thanks to Sense International India, who gave me this opportunity. I wish the entire team All The Best.

Sense International India has transformed lives of many deaf blind and blind with additional disabilities in India and their expertise has benefited neighbouring countries too like Bangladesh and even now Malaysia. They have made the difference and created great awareness on the abilities of deaf blind and blind with additional disabilities. They have a wonderful dedicated team.

I have been fortunate to "know' Sense International in some depth, as I evaluated a number of their programmes . It is a highly professional organization, working tirelessly for the rights of deafblind children and adults, and their families. They are pioneers in India in this field but what makes them unique is that they continue to work with the same zeal, honesty and dedication as when they started.

Sense International is working with people who have a dual disability and hence are not seen or heard. It has spearheaded the movement of initiating professionalservices for this group in india and reaching out to thousands of deafblind persons in remote areas. They have pioneered services, created a cadre of professionals and helped several outstanding deafblind persons to be self advocaters and prove their abilities through demonstration. The Organization has young team who is committed, creative and dynamic. I have seen the lives of several young people who are deafblind transformed by the services provided by Sense...these people are seen and heard...thanks to Sense.

I did some voluntary work with Sense India back in 1998 and have been a keen follower of its progress since. What struck me then and continues to strike me now is the incredible impact this organisation has across India. Its staff are tremendously committed to changing the lives of deafblind people and educating the people around them. This organisation is well worth supporting. Supporters can be assured that every penny/rupee/cent will have maximised impact.
