The support of governments and other funding organisations enables us to make a direct, long-term impact on the lives of people with deafblindness around the world.
Sense International has a track record of successful partnerships with governments and other funding organisations. Many have worked with us for a number of years and in more than one country. This support has had a wide-ranging impact. For example, it has enabled us to:
- Establish sight and hearing testing services for young children in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
- Create dedicated rooms for sensory stimulation therapies in specialist schools in Peru.
- Provide vocational training and small business support to young people with deafblindness in East Africa.
- Ensure that children and young people with deafblindness are able to access an education and life-long learning opportunities in Bangladesh.
These projects, among others, have been made possible by funding partnerships with the Australian High Commission Direct Aid Programme; Canada Fund for Local Initiatives; Comic Relief; Enabel, the Belgian Development Agency (funded by the European Union); the European Union; the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO – UK Aid); Guernsey Overseas Aid and Development Commission; Jersey Overseas Aid and The National Lottery Community Fund.
Sense International and our project partners would like to thank these funding organisations for supporting our work in East Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.
