Sense International is a global charity supporting deafblind people in Bangladesh, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Peru, Romania and Uganda. We are one of the world’s leading international organisations working for deafblind people and their families.
Deafblind children in these countries desperately need to receive education and healthcare. Without this, many will lead short, lonely lives.
Although Sense International is a fairly small charity, we have a big impact. For over 19 years we have been working in partnership with local organsations to provide expert support and services to deafblind people. Demonstrating to governments that deafblind people are worth investing in, we aim to put support in place so that we can walk away and leave solid expertise behind.
With this support, deafblind children can finally receive the medical and educational support they need. They can learn to communicate, to develop self-care skills, receive an education and perhaps find a job. Rather than being excluded they can thrive and live as valued human beings.
