Sense International (india) is an organization that is doing unbelievable work bringing light & sound to the deaf-blind people of India. The team at Sense International (India) works selflessly to bring cheer and dignity to these physically challenged individuals. Under the leadership of Akhil Paul, I have seen the organization grow to train & serve this lesser known affliction of DEAF + BLINDNESS. I support & request others to assist Sense International (India) in any way possible.

Sense India supports a unique disability “Deafblindness” working exclusively to meet the needs of deafblind people in India. The organization has been doing a great work and is improving the quality of life and condition of identified deafblind people across the country. One of the most noble act of humanity that one can do is to achieve their purpose of existence and I started with this journey when I got in touch with the team of SENSE India. Little did I know about the intensity of work done by the team which brought almost a paradigm shift in my outlook towards life and people. I thank Sense India for introducing me to this noble work and giving me an opportunity through events, donations and many other activities to do my bit and make a difference.

Sense does a very specialised service of serving 'Deafblind' people. In fact they were the beginners in the field of deafblind in the country. They not only provided services in different parts of the country and continent but also advocate for leveraging government resources and personnel to make the required changes in the law.

The team and the leadership is amazing. Seen Mr. Akhil Paul, the founder Director very passionately working and has given almost a decade and half towards it.

Well done folks!!!

Keep the flag waving all the time.

Very Best- Gazala- Development worker

The very thought of the serious handicap that Deafblindess causes in getting anywhere close to "normal" life made me lose sleep when I learnt about it from my friend Akhil Paul of Sense International (India). I have, since, tried to be of assistance to the cause, via Sense International (India). The work that Akhil & his team are doing is admirable. My best wishes are always with them.

I know the Organisation from close quarters. The way it is working is wonderful and I do not see how any organisational change could make the working better. I would, tho, suggest they work towards greater sensitization of people at large, not because they are not making the effort, but because people are just not aware. With greater awareness, things could change even faster for the deafblind.

I have known Akhil Paul from my days with Shishu Sarothi and later at AADI and RCI . Along the way I met and interacted with Sumitra Mishra and was completely floored by Zamir Dhale when he attended a session on youth perspectives during the India Social Forum meeting in Delhi .... I am very impressed by the nature and range of work that Sense International has been doing across the country in impacting policy and changing perspectives of people about 'deaf blindness' .... Being from the North East of India, I am waiting eagerly for them to start their services in the region and hope to see NE on the SI (India) map soon.... More power to Sense International (India) and their efforts at empowering deafblind citizens of India....!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I visited Uganda which was sponsored by Sense International & enjoyed their hospitality & shared their experience

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff and volunteers were very courteous and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could have provided more help & assistance to the disabled persons and their families.

Ways to make it better...

this organisation has had more funds at its disposal

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

....Lack of funds and unity among the parents with concerned persons.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I perceive that this organisation should unify all parets of disabled children/ persons nationally and start a big campus with all facilities like career oriented education,hospitals,market,job for the needy parents,amalgamating all under one roof.
