Sense International is the only international non-governmental organisation dedicated to supporting people with deafblindness and their families around the world.
Sense International’s work began in 1994 with the aim of sharing the knowledge and expertise of our parent organisation, Sense UK. Since this time, we have set-up locally-registered organisations in India, Kenya, Peru, Romania, Tanzania and Uganda.
We have also established programmes of work in partnership with national organisations in Bangladesh and Nepal.
We collaborate with local, national and international partners to deliver tailored support and technical expertise where it is needed. We work alongside people with deafblindness and their families, as well as teachers, health professionals, and governments. Find out more about how we work in partnership with others
