Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Deaf & Hearing Impaired Centers, Disabilities, Human Services

Mission: VAANI's vision is to eliminate the most fundamental and overlooked problem with childhood deafness - the inability of the child to communicate with his or her own parent. We believe that every deaf child is entitled to total and complete access to communication, education, protection and equality in all spheres, and information and knowledge to reach his or her full potential as an individual and a member of society with respect and dignity. It is our commitment to create an empathetic and enthusiastic environment for every deaf child, and to empower their families to nurture it. Our mission is to bring language and comprehension into the lives of deaf children and their families and thus enabling them to have meaningful conversations between themselves and the world around them.

Target demographics: Deaf children and their families across India

Direct beneficiaries per year: 2,700 Deaf Children - And in 10 Years we helped 27,000 Deaf Children.

Geographic areas served: India

Programs: VAANI works with local organisations in different States of India to support a range of different initiatives. We focus on building the capacity of organisations working specifically with deaf children and their families as well as of organisations working on cross-disability issues. VAANI enters into a formal partnership with these organisations to support long-term projects. All projects supported by VAANI show a close fit to our organisational aims. VAANI currently works with local NGOs and some Government bodies on projects in Assam, Jharkhand, Meghalaya, Karnataka, Mizoram and West Bengal.
