DEVELOPING EDUCATIONAL SERVICES FOR DEAFBLIND CHILDREN IN UGANDA
For most of us, the thought of losing our sight or hearing is pretty frightening but the concept of losing both sight and hearing is almost impossible to imagine.
Sense International will be working to ensure that 250 deafblind children and young people in Uganda are receiving educational services by the end of the first year of this three-year project. Due to the degree of disability and the distances involved we will be taking life-changing support to children within their homes. This innovative project aims to reduce poverty, impart life skills, influence behavioural change and increase the integration of deafblind persons into society.
