Sense International launches new multi-country inclusive education programme
28 May 2020
In April, Sense International launched an inclusive education project across the eight countries we work in. Thanks to the support of the Nelumbo Stiftung, the project will work to improve the educational outcomes of children with deafblindness. The project aims to:
- Support over 3,000 children with deafblindness to learn and communicate.
- Empower 400 children with deafblindness to communicate their needs to decision-makers.
- Enable 3,000 parents / carers to better support their child through access to learning resources and face to face support.
- Strengthen the capacity of 2,200 teachers and education staff through training and resources to support children with deafblindness in school.
Despite the challenging circumstances, all the country teams began work in April 2020. The project is already delivering much needed support. For example, online training for parents in India is enabling them to teach their children with deafblindness new skills during ‘lockdown’.
