Our year in numbers

We are a small charity with a big impact because of the way we work.

Last year over 37,000 young children were screened for deafblindness, thousands more received educational support, vocational training and help to establish livelihoods.

Partnership is central to what we do – partnership with people with deafblindness, their families, communities, health and education professionals, organisations of people with disabilities, and governments.

We work directly with local people and local organisations to find and share knowledge, skills, and expertise. This way, vital support can continue into the future in a sustainable way. 

For the children, young people and families that we support, our work has a life-changing impact.
