Have you come across a child who can neither see, hear and speak? Yes, 3 disabilities together! Can you imagine what and how this child will learn, live and grow, especially when 95% of our learning comes from what we see and hear! Sense India works with such "deafblind" and multi-sensory impaired children and young adults. We are striving to bring meaning into such lives through education, training and support to parents. It is almost 20 years that I have been with Sense India and have witnessed transformed lives through your support so come forward and extend a helping hand.
How many times have we been tired of our kids, who are perfectly normal, scolding them and telling them to be understandable and calm them down, in times when they don't understand stuff or get sick etc.
The guys at sense do these, but the magnitude of the whole thing changes, because the kids can't hear or see. Imagine yourself at a place where you have to explain to a child what is happening to him/her and then to make them overcome the same and to teach them to live a life. Not just children adults too loose their sight and sound and helping the adults to adjust who have become a child once again, who have to forget all that they have learned and have to learn things all again, is another task all together.
Over and above that, many of us may want to help a blind person cross the road, what we don't realize is that some of them cannot hear you, so trying to talk to them is futile, trying to make a deafblind individual explain that this is going to happen to you on the street, is another task.
So Sense working on getting the kids and individual under their wing, trying to educate them, trying to educate the public about them and to make sure the individual rights of these individuals remain intact, is by far no small act. I was stupified and had to collect myself. Their work and efforts and the efforts of the deafblind individual really minuscule things we do.
Sense International India always look for the first opportunity to support the activities related to deafblind and MSI. We at sahayogini palak santha experienced the speed at which they assessed our requirement, encouraged us to set up the Centre which is now fully operational. The support is all encompassing. Their swiftness always encourage to think big and are a driving force to work for the cause in a larger measure. They are a seasoned bunch of professional at work. We are fortunate to be in the partnership
