Trusts and foundations


Trusts and foundations are key partners in our work to support children and young people with deafblindness around the world to live, learn and thrive.

From identifying infants with sensory impairments at an early age, to ensuring that children and young people with deafblindness receive education and training to meet their full potential, charitable trusts and foundations partner with us because of the transformational impact that our work has on individual lives. 

Through partners including the Medicor Foundation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung, we are bringing expertise, knowledge and equipment to rural parts of Kenya where there are no sight and hearing testing facilities or support services for children with deafblindness.
