Our Sustainable Development Goals

Who We Are

95% of what we learn is through our eyes and ears. Deafblindness is a unique disability that combines varying degrees of both hearing and visual impairment. Imagine what it is like to be deafblind! Persons with deafblindness experience extreme challenges with communication and mobility. More often than not, they face neglect and are denied even the most basic human rights, like education and medical care, amongst other needs that are taken for granted by most of us.
Sense India has reached nearly 77,500 persons with deafblindness through a network of 59 partners across 22 states. We work in partnership with others - deafblind people, their families, carers, and professionals - to ensure that everyone facing challenges because of deafblindness has access to advise, opportunities and support. By 2025 we plan to double our coverage and provide quality services, ranging from baby screening, through education, to social and economic integration.
