Who We Are

Deafblindness is a unique and complex disability. Sense International India (also known as Sense India) is the only national level organisation supporting specialised services which enable deafblind children and adults to overcome the challenges caused by deafblindness.

95% of what we learn is through our eyes and ears. Imagine what it is like to be deafblind person. Deafblindness is mainly caused in India through Rubella (German measles) which combines varying degrees of both hearing and visual impairment. All deafblind individuals experience extreme challenges with communication and mobility; as well most have additional physical and medical conditions to overcome. Persons with deafblindness also invariably face severe neglect and discrimination owing to their inability to communicate and relate to the world. They are thus denied the basic human emotions of love and care and rights of education, medical care amongst other needs that are taken for granted by most of us.

We have provided high quality baby-screening and referral, home-based, education and other services to around 13,588 deafblind children through 56 partner NGOs in 22 states; as well we support skills and livelihood training to deafblind adults. We provide training and network to families to understand and integrate with their deafblind members. We also train educators and professionals to provide quality support.

Through collaboration with the government’s national ‘inclusive education’ SarvaShikshaAbhiyan (SSA) programme, we enable a further 63,500+ children with deafblindness and multi-sensory Impairments to access education.
