Sense India organizes an awareness program about Deafblindness on the occasion of International Women’s Day

11th March 2024: Sense India is offering tailored services to empower children and adults facing challenges posed by deafblindness and multiple disabilities. The primary goal of Sense India is to deliver essential information, guidance, and training, alongside a strong commitment to supporting individuals with deafblindness and multiple disabilities, as well as their families. This commitment extends to nationwide awareness campaigns and efforts to secure their rights, opportunities, and access to services.

Sense India was organized in Mumbai to introduce Sense India’s work in the field of deafblindness and raise awareness and resources to sustain and expand their work across India. Their focus this year is on women and girls with deafblindness and multiple disabilities. Being one of the most marginalized groups, women and girls with disabilities face double discrimination due to gender and disability. Sense India’s intervention includes vital support on sexual and reproductive health and mental health aspects in addition to education support. 8th March is celebrated the world over as International Women’s Day which made the evening even more meaningful to bring the focus on the girl child with disability.

The event was held at The Sofitel Hotel, BKC, Mumbai and through this evening Sense India has launched an exclusive Coffee table Book – ‘Senses Lost and Found- Inspiring Stories’ that encompasses a collection of short stories of children and adults with deafblindness showcasing their journey and the role of Sense India across the last 26 years. The evening also witnessed the premiere of a short film ‘We to Exist’ based on the success story and showcased Sense India’s work over 26 years.

Sense India introduced itself as not only a national-level organization working in the field of deafblindness but also as a recognizable ‘face and name’ in the development sector and start a dialogue with individuals and decision makers and high net worth individuals (HNI), which would be cultivated and nurtured into long term champions of Sense India and the cause of deafblindness. It also envisions engaging new supporters to contribute to its nationwide work with persons with deafblindness and raise funds through pledges.

Mr. Akhil Paul, Executive Director, of Sense India, says, “Being one of the most marginalized groups, women and girls with disabilities face double discrimination due to gender and disability. Sense India’s intervention includes vital support on sexual and reproductive health and mental health aspects in addition to education support. Through this event, we aim to introduce Sense India’s work in the field of deafblindness and create more awareness and resources to withstand and magnify our scope of work across India.”

Sense India has specialized expertise in the domains of deafblind communication, mobility, accessible information, assistive devices, and rehabilitation. With its unique technical know-how in the field of deafblindness and multiple disabilities, Sense India has used a multi-pronged approach since 1997. This includes technical assistance to its partner NGOs and direct training of their staff to work with children and adults with deafblindness and multiple disabilities.
