How we make a difference
Finding the children that need help
We strive to identify deafblind children as early as possible so that they can receive vital assessments and support from medical and education professionals – which will give them the best chance in life.
Education and health
Sense International works closely with governments to develop suitable school and home-based education, offers training for teachers and supports families to play their part.
Work and belonging
We provide vocational training so that deafblind people can work and participate in their communities - for example, by helping to bring in the harvest or starting a small business.
Backing local people
We work to strengthen local organisations and groups – everything from parent groups to disability organisations and governments - so that they can provide the right support for deafblind people.
Campaigning for change
Sense International and its partners lobby governments to recognise the unique challenges faced by deafblind people and to provide health, education and care services.
